Educating children is a great responsibility and privilege. We are committed to ensuring de Stafford provides all students with an outstanding learning experience so that they are fully prepared for the challenges of the modern world; where excellent examination results are achieved within a structure that supports the development of highly aspirational and confident young adults, comfortable of their place within society and the positive contribution they can make to it.
As Headteacher, I am privileged to work with an incredibly dedicated and talented staff who are highly driven in delivering the best possible quality of provision for our students. Our relentless focus on learning and achievement ensures lessons are taught within a framework of creativity, innovation and challenge. Without doubt, good exam results are essential; they open doors and empower children to achieve their dreams. However, at de Stafford we also believe in a well-rounded education where a strong focus on examination outcomes is allied with an extensive and diverse programme of enrichment opportunities.
We have an outstanding pastoral system which enables students to learn well and make excellent progress. We are committed to providing all of our students with the opportunity to flourish and to fulfil their academic, social and personal potential within a calm, happy and purposeful school environment based on a culture of high expectations and mutual respect.
