  • A reflective and self-aware leader who methodically and purposefully sequences and adapts the curriculum to suit specific student needs and give them the best learning experience possible.

  • Someone who is relentlessly enthusiastic about inspiring student passion and participation in English education as well as committed to developing cultural capital and leading extra-curricular activities.
  • Someone with high expectations, ensuring outcomes lead to outstanding attainment for all through consistent, explicit and deliberate teaching of knowledge and skills in all English lessons.
  • An experienced professional with a commitment to the whole student, and who is driven to succeed.

We are a happy and successful school where all are committed to learning and where everyone is challenged to do their best. We believe success comes in all forms and that in addition to gaining good qualifications, students should leave us as good
citizens. Our curriculum builds on the Key Stage 2 curriculum and provides both breadth and stretch for pupils as they progress towards GCSE/BTEC and then
post-16 courses.

We are ambitious for every child and promote a Growth Mindset in order to break
down any barriers to progress. In addition to a rich curriculum and great teaching we offer a varied programme of activities. This enables staff to follow their interests and develop a broad experience which will help prepare our students for adulthood.

The care we extend to all our students is epitomised by the Lavinia Norfolk Centre where students with disabilities are integrated fully into the daily life of the school.

We would love you be part of our school. In addition you may also wish to check out our website, Facebook and Twitter pages which give a daily view of school life and let you see what we stand for and how we work.

We welcome visitors so please contact us if you would like to come and meet us.
“Aspire, Achieve, Angmering.”
