ABOUT THE GRANGE SCHOOL

We are a mixed, non-selective 11-18 Foundation secondary school situated in the market town of Aylesbury and ten minutes from the Chiltern Hills – an area of outstanding natural beauty. We are close to Oxford, High Wycombe and Milton Keynes and surrounded by delightful market towns and characterful villages.

We are a supportive team with community sitting at the heart of everything we do. A community where passion, creativity and inspiring a love of learning are celebrated and embraced. Where your relentless professional commitment to supporting and empowering students is both valued and rewarded.

Our Aims:
We aim to equip all students with the adaptability and flexibility to meet the demands of a rapidly changing world and to promote a sense of responsibility towards others, the school and the wider community. The support and guidance of students is based on a Year system and aims to develop co-operation, involvement and respect in all students.

A broad and balanced curriculum is provided for Years 7 to 9. In Years 10 and 11, all students will study English, Mathematics, Science, PE, RE and PSHCE (Personal, Social & Health and Citizenship Education). Students can then choose from a range of additional GCSE, BTEC and vocational courses. We offer a range of traditional and vocational courses at Key Stage 5. The curriculum in all Key Stages is further enhanced through wide ranging extra-curricular experiences.

We aim to attract energetic and conscientious staff who have a commitment to the education of our students. The professional development of all staff is an important focus for the school. We strive to create a learning environment, which serves the needs of all the members of our diverse and vibrant community.

The Grange is more than just a school:
- We are the enablers for young people to overcome the barriers of selection and facilitate them to fulfil their academic potential, creative talent and sporting capabilities.

- We are a flourishing community based on an ethos of mutual respect. Where collaboration to create a culture of self-confidence enables both students and staff to flourish. Where a broad and balanced curriculum, a pioneering transition timetable, wide-ranging extra-curricular programme and an established reputation for outstanding pastoral care creates confident and responsible young people, who are well adjusted to meet the ever-changing demands of the 21st century.

- We are a team that values your personal development through our innovative CPDopoly programme. Where our weekly “sharing good practice” sessions allow us to collectively expand and develop unique and innovative teaching practices to further inspire our students.

- We are an environment that understands the importance of downtime for our staff. Where our dynamic Staff Social Committee prides itself on offering a varied programme of social activities and events to allow the opportunity to relax and have fun as a team.
Staff Well-being at The Grange

The Grange takes staff well being seriously. We are committed to and have signed up to the DfE Education Staff wellbeing Charter. We have an active staff wellbeing working party, which is open to all staff to join and meet regularly to talk about staff wellbeing needs across the school.

There is an active staffroom, where people go at break and lunch and regular staff lunches. In addition, there are staff activities should you wish to join, such as book club, sport, yoga, walking trips, visits to the theatre and art and craft activities and workshops.

As part of Buckinghamshire County Council, we are also able to access a number of discounts with local and national companies, including reduced train fare, restaurants and shops.

We have a team of staff that are identified as the listening ear team who can support and signpost staff, if and when needed.
