Headteacher's Welcome

Dear Parents and Prospective Student,

As Headteacher, I am delighted to welcome you to our school.

Idsall School is a thriving and highly successful school that believes every student can reach their potential. By setting the highest of standards, we value each and every one of our students and they are always at the very centre of what we do. By recognising their unique needs and aspirations, providing equal opportunities and a safe caring environment, our students are able to flourish and achieve their best in everything they do.

Our unrivalled pastoral care and guidance supports our fine reputation for outstanding behaviour, courtesy and respect which is always commented on by visitors to our school and the local community. We have genuinely inspiring teachers and a team of support staff, an innovative approach to teaching and learning, a broad and balanced curriculum and a flourishing extra curriculum programme. In addition, we offer a wide range of opportunities for students to gain and develop the skills necessary for the rapidly changing world of work they are destined to encounter.

Students can take a wide range of subjects at both A Level, GCSE as well as a suite of vocational qualifications which are well supported by our busy and successful extra-curricular activities and extended opportunities. Offering a wide range of activities and challenges, we create friendships and pastimes which gives our students such fulfilment and memories through their lives reflecting positively on our school motto.

We have been externally recognised and validated as a high performing school over several years and many inspections now, which clearly reflects the high standards of education, care and support we offer. This is clearly an exciting place to learn, work and grow. We are continuing to build on our many strengths to ensure outstanding examination results over the seven years, as well as the many other skills that will help each and every one of our students to become outstanding citizens and highly successful in life.

Please do browse our website and come for a look around to see what a truly unique and inclusive school community we are; I am sure you will be amazed, it’s a great place to study, work and a real pleasure to be part of the Idsall School experience and journey.
