A welcome from the Headteacher: The School's Ethos

Welcome to Taverham High School. I am very proud to be the headteacher of this friendly and supportive school. I invite you to explore our website, or visit us personally, to experience the exceptional behaviour and attitudes of our students and the broad educational experience that we offer. Underpinning all we do are the excellent relationships between staff, students and parents. Good communication, trust and respect provide the very best basis on which to nurture and develop the unique gifts and talents of our young people. We are fortunate to have exceptional school buildings providing the very best environment for learning; the opportunities for our students are exceptional.

As an excellent, high achieving, 11-18 school with a caring positive ethos, we seek to promote the development of students into resilient, independent young people, who are respectful and make a positive contribution to the wider community and beyond. We have high expectations of ourselves and our students and work exceptionally hard to ensure that we celebrate their achievements and support every student to achieve their potential, regardless of background, ability or barriers to learning. We want every student to feel safe and secure in our school and be able to grow and thrive. We are reflective and constantly strive to improve; we focus relentlessly on developing the teaching and learning that takes place. We provide interesting and exciting lessons that challenge and deepen students’ skills, knowledge and understanding.  Our curriculum is innovative and flexible, meeting the needs of the individual students.  We are also very determined to provide a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities to build students’ confidence, team-building skills, and thirst for and love of learning. Good careers advice and guidance underpins our curriculum meaning that, with their high academic results, we are able to support our students to move onto successful pathways at university, on apprenticeships or into the world of work.

For your information we offer paper copies of web-based information free of charge.  Please do not hesitate to contact the school if necessary.
