Our Vision and Values

We provide each student with the opportunity to succeed. We are committed to high standards: hard work, good behaviour and positive relationships enable our students to achieve excellence. We work hard to ensure that our school is a lively, purposeful and supportive community, meeting the needs of each and every person.

  • Aspire to high standards and to giving every student the opportunity to succeed in a dynamic learning environment.
  • Ensure that our school is a lively and purposeful community, where everyone has a positive contribution to make and success is always celebrated.
  • Understand the local and global arena in which we live and work, whilst developing shared tolerance, respect and partnerships.
  • Promote the health and well-being of our students through what is taught in school and via the wider school environment.
  • Provide our students with the information and skills to make informed life choices and keep themselves safe.
We believe that successful learners are those who are encouraged to have high aspirations and believe they can achieve their best. Our broad curriculum has been developed to provide for the diverse interests and needs of our students allowing everyone to achieve success.

We also believe that the key to effective learning is Teaching Excellence. We are committed to delivering a high quality education in a dynamic learning environment. Our professional and dedicated staff ensure that their lessons are interesting and challenging, individuals are valued and their success celebrated. Regular training is undertaken to ensure that everyone is up to speed with new developments and there are many opportunities to share “best practice”.

We have been delighted in the huge improvement in our exam results over recent years. This improvement is testament to the transformation of the curriculum and demonstrates the success of our Teaching and Learning strategy throughout the school, giving students the confidence, knowledge and skills to aspire to their best.

Before your child starts at Prospect, you can be sure that we have liaised closely with their Primary school in order to give each child the best possible start to their career at Prospect School. Our induction programme begins in the summer term of Year 6 and is continued at the beginning of Year 7, so that our youngest students quickly become confident and relaxed in their new surroundings.
 
We aim to provide an inclusive environment, a supportive atmosphere and a curriculum to cater for students of all abilities. Gifted and talented students are identified through the Teaching and Learning Policy and a variety of strategies are in place to ensure that the most able are capable of fulfilling their potential. If your child has special needs, it is likely that in some subjects they will receive extra support. We also offer short-term intensive courses in both Year 7 and 8 for those with limited literacy skills. Further difficulties can be addressed by regular sessions with a specialist literacy teacher. Numeracy support is given via a combination of in-class support and small group work. Other educational needs are supported in a variety of ways depending on the individual circumstances. When necessary, bilingual students are given extra support to raise their achievement in core subjects.
