Message from the Principal...

Mrs Mary Kirkland

Mary Kirkland - Principal

Here at Cockshut Hill we believe in four main principles:

  • Potential
  • Progress
  • Partnership
  • Pride


We feel that everyone has the potential to achieve well in some aspect of school life. We also believe that it is part of our job to help people discover their strengths and make the best of their talents. Our Technology College status is very important to us and we hope that everyone feels the benefit of the extra dimension it brings to learning in every subject.


It is very important to us that people make good progress while they are working with us.  Learning for all is our main aim, and through stimulating and challenging teaching we hope that everyone in our community decides that learning is for life and not just for school!


We cannot achieve all this without your help, and in choosing our College we hope that you will work with us so that we can do the best for all our students.  Please reinforce our messages about meeting deadlines, good manners and good learning.


We are very proud of our college.  The quality o our teaching and learning is always under discussion and we are always looking for ways to improve.  Our results are good and will get better.  Thanks to a recent rebuilding and refurbishment programme our buildings and facilities are excellent.  We are not perfect, but we want to be the best that we can.  We hope that everyone, from the newest student to the longest serving member of staff is glad to be part of Cockshut Hill.

The contents of this prospectus give background information about the College.  However, there is no better way of getting to know us than by coming to see us in action.  We look forward to meeting you.

Mary Kirkland - Principal

The teaching staff is in excess of 90 and the large non-teaching staff includes campus personnel, finance officer, clerical staff, technicians, first-aider and lunchtime supervisors.

The buildings are situated on one site in Cockshut Hill, with on-site tennis courts and a grass games area that is used for rugby during the winter and athletics during the summer. Locals off site facilities are used for a wider variety of sporting activities. The College is fortunate in having its own extensive playing fields in Sedgmere Road and enjoys shared used of the local Sedgmere Club facilities, all being within short walking distance.

The teaching accommodation comprises a main two-storey block, a single storey block and several additional groups of buildings that will be replaced by the multi-million pound rebuild. Recent additions include a £0.5 million Science Centre, refurbishment to the technology suite and a new 6th form centre. Departments are generally situated with their own specialist resources.
