Summerhill School has undergone a rapid transformation over the last year.
James Bowkett, Executive Headteacher, said: “We have always been known as one of the most successful schools in the region, with lovely students and a wonderful community; we are now raising the bar to new heights with a new ethos and culture of excellence.
“Rapid improvements last year, with a focus upon both academic success and a broad curriculum to support and challenge all students, led to:
“We are aiming to become known nationally for our collaboration with the best schools across the country and our innovative best practice, creating wonderful opportunities for our children.
We are increasing our intake to allow more students to benefit from belonging to our community.
We have wonderful children, a caring and supportive community and a newly formed, experienced, skilled and passionate staff.
“We have modern well-equipped buildings and are located within beautiful countryside.
Since I arrived last autumn, we have reviewed and re-structured our school thoroughly to ensure that our children receive an education that is the best possible, and only emulating or improving upon UK best practice.
We are travelling very fast on a journey to become the undoubted first choice for education in our region, whether that be selective, comprehensive or independent.
“Please contact the school to arrange a time to tour, speak to students and staff and to experience the safe, warm, caring and positive atmosphere which are the hallmarks of Summerhill School.”
