WELCOME FROM THE HEADTEACHER
Welcome to Colton Hills Community School. It is my privilege to be the Headteacher of this very caring and ambitious school and it is a responsibility I fully embrace. We are a GOOD school. This is increasingly being recognised across the city and the local community, and was certainly confirmed by Ofsted in our most recent inspection.
As a parent or carer of a child, choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions you will make. You can be assured that your child will feel safe, secure and confident enough to access the wide range of opportunities and experiences offered at Colton Hills, which will help shape the rest of their life.
Dedicated staff at all levels of the school ensure that no student, regardless of background, need or circumstance, is left behind but we also ensure that every single student is stretched to meet their full academic potential.
Education is most successful when parents can be involved in their child’s progress and so our approach at Colton Hills is founded on the special relationship between you as parents, teachers, other adults at the school and your child. We will therefore work closely with you to ensure your child achieves the very best.
Our unique faculty approach to the curriculum will ensure students leave Colton Hills as young adults able to read, write and communicate to a high standard; able to think scientifically and mathematically and design creatively; and be able to express themselves through the arts, sport or business, developing courage and resilience through a challenging curriculum matched to their needs. As a true community school we embrace all students' unique talents, dispositions, beliefs and backgrounds whilst fostering tolerance, understanding and respect. Academically and socially, Colton Hills students develop the very skills and intelligence required to succeed in a complex multi-cultural world.
With the support of my dedicated governors we are now well on our our way to being an outstanding school. We have excellent facilities which are put to good use through an engaging, relevant and innovative curriculum where your child can succeed in a broad range of subjects and activities.
I know that with our excellent teaching, our well-disciplined environment and our structured system of guidance and support, our students develop into capable young people, well prepared for adult and family life, careers and work.
I invite you to visit us, see for yourself how we do it and I very much look forward to meeting you.
