It is not possible to operate a normal timetable for all year groups without power to the Main Building. The Fulmar Centre will be open for school meals and Top Building will be in use for Year 11 and Sixth Form classes to take place. School buses will operate normally for Year 11 and Sixth Form students who should report to their usual classrooms at the start of the day. Main Building classes will be moved to Top Building throughout the day. We are monitoring the situation closely and will send further updates out as soon as they become available.
We are a school for students aged between 13 and 19. Our catchment serves mainly the eastern side of Leek and much of the Staffordshire Moorlands, with around half our students coming from the town and half from the rural areas. We are a school with a strong sense of community, where your child will be happy and safe. We encourage every student to aim high and accept no limits. Students are treated as individuals; we recognise and celebrate different abilities and interests and believe that everyone can fulfil their potential through dedication and hard work.
Our most recent Ofsted inspection in January 2019 confirmed that the school remains “good” with inspectors noting that:
“Pupils generally have positive attitudes to learning and they behave well”
“Relationships are respectful throughout the school”
“Staff know pupils well and pupils trust their teachers”
“Pupils are very complimentary about the pastoral support that they receive when they need it”
“Leaders have demonstrated a determination to bring about a change in culture and raise pupils’ aspirations”
Our students are caring, creative and committed young people superbly supported by a committed staff team. The school’s pastoral system supports academic progress by providing personalised guidance and intervention. Above all it is the hard work energy and humour of students and staff that makes our school such an inspiring learning environment.
