Welcome to Chipping Sodbury School
It is a real privilege to be head teacher at Chipping Sodbury School and I am very proud of all that we do here to ensure that every student achieves beyond their expectations. It is important to me that we develop an environment which will allow each and every student to find the right combination of challenge and opportunity suited to their unique talents and gifts.
We seek constantly to improve outcomes for students of all ability levels. One of my main roles is to ensure that high quality and inspirational teaching is taking place in all subject areas and to deliver a curriculum that is both accessible and stretching. Whilst I am pleased with our academic achievements, education is about so much more.
At Chipping Sodbury School we promote an environment where effort and curiosity are valued, where persistence and resilience are encouraged and where each student has the chance to realise their potential. Our students enjoy some excellent facilities, not least the multi-million pound sports hall, dance studio and floodlit artificial grass pitch. Our status as a specialist technology college means students get access to high quality technical equipment in addition to their more traditionally academic subjects. Most of our students stay on after year 11 to join the fast growing, ambitious and exciting sixth form.
I am always delighted to meet prospective parents who wish to see the school 'in action' on a normal day or who wish to discuss any particular issues that they may have. Please do not hesitate to make an appointment should you wish to do so. I do hope you will want to join our thriving community.
The school has its own Sixth Form Centre. We work in partnership with Brimsham Green School and Yate International Academy to form the Cotswold Edge sixth form. This collaboration allows us to offer a wide range of courses, both academic and vocational.
Sixth form students take on other responsibilities and act as role models for younger ones. A strong support team provides information and guidance to students to help make decisions that are right for them as they move from school into university or employment.
The school's sports hall and all weather pitches can be hired for a variety of events and activities, including sporting events, meeting rooms and birthday parties.
