The aim of the school is simple: we are here so that all students have the best possible education. To ensure this, the learning environment is rigorous. We expect and insist on high levels of attendance and proper punctuality, on homework and coursework completed to a high standard, on classwork to be proud of, on courtesy extended to all staff, fellow students and visitors.

Tunbridge Wells High School is an open school. All students are welcome, valued and respected in a community which is as wide as the world outside. Our society is mixed, multi-faith and of all levels of ability, and so are we. We are proud of this diversity which makes us such a friendly school and which gives students the most natural preparation for the diversity to be found in higher education and the world of work.

Our values are based on mutual respect. Every individual has responsibilities and rights and we have due regard to both. Teachers have a responsibility to teach well and to respect students as individuals. Students have a responsibility to learn and respect their teachers and each other. Parents have responsibilities too, as do our governors. We focus on the essential business of the school, that of teaching and learning. At all times we celebrate effort and success.

We work in partnership with parents and students. Every year we ask parents and pupils what we do well and what we could improve, and their views are heeded. The Student Council has put forward ideas that have advanced our work. With students, parents, teachers and governors working together, the sky is truly the limit.

There is significant and sustained improvement in examination results at all levels as we all focus sharply on the quality of what we do. Our students’ self-esteem and confidence have developed with this success and the staff-room is a vibrant and happy place. Everyone works hard at Tunbridge Wells High School and we share with students the immense satisfaction of a job well done.
Our site is very pleasant and spacious, with ever-improving facilities. We have a leading edge ICT suite, a modern well stocked library and over £2 million has been invested in a new Technology Block, a Community Sports Centre and refurbished facilities for music and drama.
Visitors are always welcome at our school. If you would like to see us or to discuss any aspect of our work, please contact me at the school.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced and provides all the components required by legislation.  We aim to promote the moral, spiritual, cultural, mental and physical development of our students and prepare them for the opportunities, experiences and responsibilities of adult life.


All courses are equally available to all our students.  We aim to give them the knowledge and skills they need and also to prepare them to respect other people as well as themselves.


Testing is carried out at particular stages to ensure that our targets are suitably high and to ensure that we are as effective as we should be in both teaching and learning.


Most subjects are now grouped by ability.  This enables a student with a particular aptitude in a subject to progress more quickly (see also Learning Support below).  Teaching methods vary with the nature of the work being done, but in all cases there is a clear explanation of the task in hand, followed by work by the class, in groups, in pairs or by individuals.


At all times students should be clear on what is expected of them, in classwork and homework.  In these endeavours we expect the support of all our parents in securing the best possible progress for our students.  Our most able students are identified at an early stage.  Their names are shared with all staff and appropriate targets are set for them which are monitored regularly.


Our teaching week at Tunbridge Wells High School is 25 hours in both Key Stages.
