THE CULTURE AND ETHOS OF THE SCHOOL ARE BUILT AROUND THREE KEY VALUES:
AMBITION, ALTRUISM AND ACHIEVEMENT
Codsall Community High School has a long record of academic and sporting success and is proud to sit at the heart of its thriving community.
Headteacher Simon Maxfield has led the school since September 2022 and is focused on ensuring the school continues to be a centre of excellence for young people. Codsall High is graded by Ofsted as a “Good” school and was most recently visited in March 2023.
The culture and ethos of the school are built around three key values: Ambition, Altruism and Achievement. As a result, the school is a happy, stimulating and safe place for children.
Mr Maxfield is proud to lead the school in the next phase of its journey, saying: “At the heart of everything we do is the belief in personal growth.
“Each student will have differing strengths and starting points, but our staff work hard to ensure students have belief in themselves and that with determination, anything is possible.”
Leaders and staff ensure a consistent focus upon the quality of the learning experience. The school is fortunate to attract highly skilled staff who work collectively to ensure our education is ‘world class’ and we seek to continually evolve and improve our approach to meet the needs of the young people we serve.
Codsall High School provides an excellent range of academic and vocational qualifications at both GCSE and A-level. Examination success is of course vitally important, but not in isolation. Codsall High School provides Codsall Community High School opportunity for students to excel in the arts and sporting arenas too.
Mr Maxfield said: “There is so much to be proud of in the opportunities we provide students and the outcomes we achieve, but our greatest achievement is in producing young people who are respectful, self-disciplined, and kind to those around them and who understand how to make a positive difference to society.”
Despite the school’s successes, we are not complacent. Mr Maxfield is keen to ensure that the school continues to develop and adapt.
He said: “More than ever before, we also need to ensure young people enjoy high quality careers preparation and through developing a career-led curriculum, we can help students maximise their employability and shape their future aspirations.”
“The real success comes when we help students open the door to their futures beyond the school gates, whether that is university, apprenticeships or employment.”
“The best advert we have is for parents to come and see us working.”
“Parents are incredibly impressed by what they see in the classrooms and corridors and I’m always delighted to be able to demonstrate to parents just what makes our school so special.”
