It is with great pleasure that I write to you as Principal of Cleeve School and Sixth Form Centre. My vision for the school is very simple: for it to provide the very best possible education and experience for all of its students so that they are thoroughly prepared for the next, very exciting stages of their lives. The highest standards and aspirations permeate everything we do.
As a parent myself, I know that all parents and carers want the very best for their children – and rightly so. As a school, we have a duty to provide all of our students with an exceptional learning experience, one that allows them to attain excellent examination results, but also one that prepares them for an increasingly challenging world beyond school, where the ability to keep learning and developing is imperative. Our programme of extra-curricular activities and enrichment is of the highest calibre and contributes towards the students thriving in all aspects of their growth and development; equally, our provision for the most able ensures that they progress through our flourishing Sixth Form Centre to the best universities, including Oxbridge.
Cleeve School offers consistently outstanding teaching and an innovative and highly personalised curriculum, where literacy and numeracy skills are secured as firm bedrocks. The school provides a safe and stimulating environment, where mutual respect threads through the celebrated ethos of care, support and guidance. In preparing students for the world beyond school, we firmly believe in high standards of dress and attitude, so that good manners, tolerance and understanding underpin everything we do. Tradition is important – and we hold on to our traditions and high expectations, whilst also thoroughly embracing innovation and a 21st century approach to learning.
