Our aim, quite simply, is to make sure that every child, in every lesson, every day is achieving excellence. That is at the heart of what we believe and strive towards.

Cove School is a happy and supportive place in which to work; with a relentless focus on care and academic excellence for the children of Cove. We work closely with a number of county and national projects focused on developing curriculum wide literacy and oracy skills. Reading is at the heart of the school from dedicated tutor time through to significantly investing in individuals with poor reading skills using the Thinking Reading programme.
