Welcome to Bishop Justus Church of England School
Kathy Griffiths MSc. BEd. NPQH
As the founding Headteacher of this inspirational church school community, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our website.
Being the Head of a new school has given me the freedom and scope to develop a new school culture, an innovative curriculum and an opportunity to create something truly unique. As a community we have been able to try new things and lay the foundations for a school that would combine the most exciting and positive elements of the comprehensive system within a Christian setting.
Our first year in 2004 certainly was demanding: waiting to get into our state of the art new building, establishing a diverse, talented and dedicated teaching staff; developing new relationships in the wider community. But, very early on it was clear that others shared our vision and determination, and it was not long before we could look around us and see that the foundations we had been working so hard to put in place were in fact in position.
Today, I am immensely proud of what we have been able to achieve. In just two years we have been on an incredible journey, and are well-established as a good school and a vibrant Christian community with a palpable enthusiasm for the school shared by students, staff, parents and carers and the wider community alike. Focused on the intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual development of our students, we are now in a great position to push for higher achievement and excellence right across the curriculum.
I hope that the site will give you a picture of some of what goes on in the School, and begin to show you a school that is caring, thriving, confident, and forward looking.
