You will find on these pages a flavour of what goes on in the school, a clear idea of what we strive to achieve for our students and why The William Allitt is such a unique school.

We have been designated a Specialist Performing Arts College in recognition of the quality of work in this area of the curriculum. However, our most recent OFSTED report recognised the high quality of teaching and learning opportunities across the curriculum and the dedication and commitment of school staff to our students. 

Reading is one thing: the best way to find out about a school is to visit. This can be arranged through Mrs Hipwell, Headteacher’s Secretary, at school.

Our  Commitment

We are committed to the highest possible standards of teaching and learning throughout the school.
This, combined with care for the individual and high expectations
of all will enable our students to reach their full potential as learners and future citizens.


The Education of the more able child at the William Allitt School


At The William Allitt School we aim to meet the educational and social needs of the full range of students, providing a relevant, accessible and balanced curriculum which challenges all students and enables them to achieve success.

In the case of more able students we aim to prepare them for a future in which they have access to the best universities, and go on to fulfil their potential as future leaders in whichever sphere they choose to work. The school has in place strategies and policies which enable the gifted and talented members of the school's population to achieve at levels commensurate with their abilities. It is common to find students achieving 10/11 A*/A grades at GCSE.

Identification of Students

The school identifies those students who are gifted in a particular area or talented generally through the use of data (e.g. national test data, cognitive abilities tests, school-based performance and subject recommendation.) Nominations are made annually to the National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth by the school's Talented and Gifted Co-ordinator, Mr Moss. 

What does the school provide?

  • Extension materials within subject areas as part of the normal school curriculum

  • Extra curricular activities (e.g. sports teams, drama, individual music tuition, after school clubs, extra-curricular Spanish, participation in regional and national competitions and involvement in community events

  • After school projects and competitions in various subject areas

  • Educational visits (theatre and museum visits, activity centres, foreign language trips, visits to the world of work)

  • Annual summer school (based on music and the expressive arts)

When is provision made?

Extension and enrichment of learning takes place within the curriculum, at lunchtimes and after school and during the school's annual enrichment week when the normal timetable is suspended in order that students may participate in a wide variety of activities.
