What the school says...

At Prospect School we are committed to continuous improvement and the raising of educational standards. As a Specialist College in Sports and ICT, we aim to build on our current successful practice of developing young people who are physically, emotionally and educationally healthy. The concept of 'personal best' is used to develop students who are determined to succeed with whatever academic, sporting or personal goal they set.
We are very proud to be able to offer an extensive range of learning options, backed up by an excellent welfare structure. We encourage and project an ethos of mutual respect and support where the diversity of peoples backgrounds is used to enrich our community and everyone is treated with equal value and care.

Our staff are committed to working in partnership with students and parents to widen perspectives, raise expectations, give encouragement and offer guidance. We celebrate and recognise all types of achievement to build self-belief and self-esteem and to create an enjoyable and rewarding learning atmosphere.

We were delighted to find ourselves in 5th place in a table showing the schools and colleges in England with the top 5% Level 3 contextual value added scores in 2008 and we also appear in the Top 100 Most Improved Schools for our Key Stage 4 results over the past three years.

In order to fully appreciate the facilities and opportunities on offer at Prospect, please contact the school for an appointment to see the school in action for yourself.
