Headteacher's Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you enjoy reading our prospectus and that it provides you with an understanding of The Bishop Wand Church of England School’s ethos and values.

We are a Church school, with a Sixth Form and offer your child an inclusive 11-19 education in a friendly, caring and Christian environment.

We strive to achieve outstanding academic outcomes in an environment where every child is valued. Our drive for academic successes is based around the School Mission Statement: ‘Realising God-given potential’ developing our students to becoming confident, articulate members of a global society. In the most recent SIAMS inspection the school was rated Outstanding in every aspect.

Our School is a learning community and great importance is placed on developing the interests and skills of every individual student, so valuing their unique worth. Our fundamental expectation of students and their behaviour is that they strive to do their best; respect each other and work together to create an exceptional learning environment.

Developing a positive partnership between home and school is fundamental to the educational and spiritual growth of your child and therefore we work closely with parents/carers to reinforce our expectations and high standards in behaviour, uniform, attendance and work ethic.

Fundamentally, students succeed in their learning when they are happy and while we continually strive to improve the quality of education and learning on offer, the wellbeing of your child comes first.

If you would like to visit the School and see this in practice, l invite you to join one of our school tours.

Daniel Aldridge
