Our Vision at Sir William Perkins's School is to build confidence, integrity and excellence in a caring, innovative and happy community so that each pupil leaves having been given the best possible chance of achieving their full potential, taking with them sound values, a breadth of skills and knowledge, and ready to take on the world!
The School's Aims are to:
- Inspire excellence in academic standards
- Give students the confidence to enjoy learning, the resilience to learn from mistakes and to cultivate good habits of work
Help each student:
- develop fully as an individual with integrity
- refine creative and practical skills
- gain the qualifications they need to embark on, and succeed in, their chosen career
- think independently
- be a confident, responsible and unselfish member of the community
Academic success is our priority but education should be about far more than just top grades. We believe in educating the whole person and equipping our students to have the confidence to make their mark on the world. We encourage them to get involved in the many co-curricular activities on offer, to take every opportunity to develop their interests and creativity, their interpersonal, teamwork and leadership skills, to be forward-thinking and to reach into the wider community.
Our latest inspection report said of our students:
"Pupils demonstrate excellent social awareness and they grow up to be poised, confident, and articulate young women."
The School recognises that high quality teaching, differentiated for individual pupils is the first step to responding to students who have or may have SEND, such as Dyslexia or Attention Deficit.
Class teachers are the first people to offer support to the pupil in order for their potential to be achieved. Pupils’ needs are then reviewed regularly and individual support may be offered outside of lessons to augment the support given in class. This is agreed with the Learning Support Coordinator who is also responsible for examination access arrangements.
