I am proud and feel very privileged to be leading this successful school that gained a ‘Good’ Ofsted judgment in November 2017 with 'Outstanding' Leadership and 'Outstanding' Personal Development and Welfare. Our Progress 8 score in 2019 is the highest of all local non-selective schools (within 15 miles).
I have a highly qualified and motivated staff that are passionate about ensuring all students feel safe, happy and reach their potential. We offer a wide curriculum to meet the needs of all students as well as having an established and effective SEN department who support students with additional needs.
As a Rights Respecting School, the United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child infect all that we do. It is a way of being that gives students a sense of purpose and morals, understanding their place in our global community. We are proud to be one of only 9 secondary schools in the country to have been awarded the highest level 2 award.
We are well renowned as a Sports College with results at GCSE and 6th form that are outstanding. We have also been awarded Artsmark Gold, the highest accolade for our standards in Performing and Creative Arts!
Our students are kind and care for each other. They are polite and respectful to each other and to staff and the very positive relationships enable effective learning conditions supported by creative and engaging teaching that stretch all abilities.
Our accommodation is extensive, modern and vibrant. All classrooms feature the excellent resources and technologies that enable students to learn effectively in the 21st Century. Other accommodation includes Art studios, a studio theatre, recording studio, ICT suites and state of the art sports facilities.
As for our popularity, an increasing number of students and parents are now choosing The Regis School for their education, especially in Years 7 and 8 where we are now over-subscribed, showing a confidence in our ability to provide a high class and personalised education.
We offer a huge range of extra-curricular activities whether revision sessions, master classes, sports clubs and team, arts exhibitions and performances, and a multitude of trips throughout the south of England as well as to Europe and Africa last year.
Although we think of ourselves as a good and continually school we are not complacent and continue to strive for further improvements. Our key priorities for the current school year are as follows:
- To further improve teaching so that it addresses current underachievement of boys, Pupil Premium and HAPs
- To further improve standards of students' behaviour in and out of the classroom
- To improve the effectivness of middle leadership to reduce the in-school variation of subject performance in public exams
But why take our word on our success? Why not visit us and see The Regis School 'in action' by making an appointment for a guided tour? You will see that our motto ‘The Best in Everyone’ infects all who work and learn here through our Regis 10; students who are focused and engaged in learning and teachers and support staff who deliver creative and inspiring lessons.
Our website is full of information about our school and we hope you enjoy finding out more about us. I very much look forward to meeting you perhaps and providing your child with the high quality education that brings them the success they deserve.
