WELCOME TO BRIDGNORTH ENDOWED SCHOOL
Parents and Carers
I am delighted that you are considering Bridgnorth Endowed School for the next stage of your son or daughters education. Choosing the right secondary school is a vital decision for each and every family. I hope that the information in this prospectus, together with our developing reputation within the local community and beyond, will give you a flavour of what we believe is distinct and special about Bridgnorth Endowed School. Receiving a national award for outstanding improvement, putting us in the top 10% of schools, demonstrates how hard we are working to be the best we can be. Our website, bridgnorthendowed.co.uk will give you more information about our work.
We have a long tradition of serving the community of Bridgnorth, dating back to 1503 when the school was founded, in the reign of King Henry VII. Today we welcome students from a wide geographical area and aim to provide the best possible education and opportunities for all and to be at the forefront of educational development. We seek to offer an environment that is secure and caring, of high aspiration and in which students take pride in their achievements.
We believe in a curriculum which develops the academic potential of each student to the full, no matter what their starting point. We offer a breadth of curriculum that will meet and respond to individual need. We seek to encourage social responsibility and care for others. We expect those who choose to attend the Endowed School to be hard working, to aim high and to achieve their very best in everything they do.
Our vision for the school may be summarised by the phrase: Be the best that you can be by working together for success The key elements of our vision are:
Learners who are:
• Happy, secure inspired and confident
• Fully engaged in the life and development of the school
• Developing the life skills of thinking, teamwork, resilience, responsibility, communication, creativity and independence to prepare them for the changing world in which they live
• Valued as individuals of real potential
In a school community that is:
• Forward looking in teaching, learning and technology
• Student centred
Our close links with the London 2012 Olympic legacy project means that we have Olympic athletes visiting the school regularly throughout the year. They help us develop our vision with the students by giving them practical strategies and motivation to ‘Be the best’ that they can be in all things. This is an important part of providing inspiration for all students to reach for the stars.
We value a close working relationship between parents, students, the local community and the school. If you would like to find out more about us or visit us to sample the atmosphere and experience what we can offer as a school we will be pleased to make an appointment with you.
