Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to our website and welcome to a celebration of who we are now and a clear vision of what we aspire to be in the future.

It is our fundamental belief that every young person should be cared for unconditionally and valued equally. We strive to create a positive and happy family community, not least through our House system which permeates everything we do. Our pastoral system is well established with a real commitment to personal development and support for all.

Our students’ considerable academic successes and excellence are achieved, by providing a broad, balanced, stimulating and flexible curriculum that centres on the needs and engagement of the individual student. This is part of a much wider holistic education that we provide at Calthorpe Park School. We promote a philosophy of constantly challenging ourselves, both students and staff, to aspire to be the best we can be.

Our enrichment and charity events are renowned: from our annual Model United Nations through to Citizenship Days and enterprise activities; house-based fundraising projects and an amazing array of music, drama and art.

At Calthorpe Park we promote dispositions alongside academic endeavour. We value commitment, generosity of spirit and integrity underpinned by a readiness to demonstrate resilience, show resourcefulness and to be courageous.

Our students are curious, reflective and independent young people; accomplished, rounded and responsible individuals who aspire for themselves and inspire others. They are a source of never-ending ideas, surprises, delights and pride.

Mr K John
