I recently asked the staff team the six million dollar question, ‘Why do you chose to work at this school?’ This is what they said.

I like...

  • working in a dynamic and focused school
  • working with small groups of pupils
  • getting to know pupils well and really making a difference in helping them to succeed
  • working in a changing and challenging environment
  • having the opportunity to learn from others
  • giving others the opportunity to learn from me
  • having the freedom to try new things
  • working in a well-resourced environment where the number of photocopies you make doesn’t matter
  • having excellent opportunities for professional development
  • working in a small and supportive staff team
  • having the opportunity to run my own department
  • having the autonomy to develop my own department
  • working in a pleasant environment
  • knowing my voice is heard in school-wide issues.

Isn’t it all outdoor pursuits and woolly hats?

The school has a strong secondary ethos and mirrors mainstream practice in most areas of educational life. We maintain a strong curriculum focus and all pupils sit GCSE examinations in year 11.The broad aim of the school is to help pupils to manage their behaviour so that they can do more classroom learning. The real advantage in a school like this is that the pupil/teacher ratio is a maximum of 1:8. This gives both pupils and teachers the best chance of success. We also emphasise rewards rather than sanctions, which allows us ‘to catch young people being good’, raise self-esteem and increase the likelihood of pupils attempting new and challenging tasks in the classroom.
