Southborough High School is a non-selective academy school for boys between the ages of 11 and 16, and boys and girls post 16. The roll is just over 780, over 190 of whom are in the sixth form.

Southborough High is a thriving school which provides a high quality of education in a happy and purposeful atmosphere. It is continually developing and improving and has a very good reputation locally.

Our OFSTED Inspection was very successful and catalogues a range of high achievement by pupils and staff. All applicants are invited to read the Ofsted Report which is available on our school website.

The school employs over 80 members of staff. With the increase in pupil numbers there has been an influx of new staff, creating a positive blend of more experienced colleagues with youth. Both Ofsted and Investors in People remarked upon the happy working atmosphere which is both supportive and collaborative. There is an active and experienced Senior Leadership Team, comprising of the Head, two Deputy Heads, one Assistant Head, the Head of Sixth Form and the Business Manager. Academic and pastoral matters are viewed coherently and the roles of the tutor, Head of Year and Pastoral Support Officers are pivotal to the process of developing the whole child.

Heads of Faculty lead curriculum areas along with the support of specialist subject teams. Heads of Year and Pastoral Support Officers provide a focus for personal development and academic progress. We are also fortunate to be served by an excellent Learning Support Team, led by our SENCO, which includes a School Counsellor and many teaching assistants. There are also peripatetic tutors for a range of musical instruments.

The Support Staff play a crucial role in the organisation. There is the Head’s PA & Office Manager, PA to Deputy Heads/Clerk to Governors, a receptionist, an attendance officer and a finance officer (all of whom work in the main school office), a librarian, two laboratory assistants, an ICT technician and a resources assistant who provides a comprehensive reprographics service to support learning. There is also a Site Manager and his assistant who maintain the good appearance and cleanliness of our site and buildings.

There is a great emphasis placed upon staff development. An up to date induction programme exists for all new staff (including newly qualified teachers).

Staff are also encouraged to contribute to the development of the school by joining taskforces in support of Priorities on the School Improvement Plan. Appraisal is fully operational in the school involving all staff. There is also an active staff social committee. Our supportive Governing Body includes two teacher representatives. There are three Governor Committees – Curriculum and Achievement, Children Families and Community, Resources Personnel and Finance. A Staff Handbook is published each year on line. It provides ‘everyday’ guidance on school policy. There is also a ‘School Policy File’ which is continually under review. All staff maintain and use a 'Teacher Planner' which is regularly monitored by line managers.
