About Baxter College
At Baxter College, we have a strong emphasis on promoting positive well-being for young people. These are unique times to grow up; the pressures of social media and the internet need to be challenged through developing a strong sense of self and inner resilience. Our pastoral teams and form tutors make sure that students can overcome any barriers they may have to learning. Our teachers plan activities that deliver the essential knowledge and skills but take opportunity to explore how a deep understanding of a topic can improve wellbeing, and the process of learning can develop resilience and character.
Personal growth develops beyond the school day. Baxter College offers a broad programme of enrichment opportunities to develop the confidence and character that students need to boldly move into higher education and employment. It is vital that students have a global perspective, and our range of visits to countries across Europe will provide students with different cultural experiences that will shape the rest of their lives. We are all very proud of our established Duke of Edinburgh program, a proven way to improve students’ confidence and resilience. When our alumni return they often reflect on the happy memories of their time on expedition with the D of E.
Baxter College has strong relationships with its local community, forming excellent relationships with parents and carers. We work as a team, with the common goal of supporting students to learn and grow to achieve the very best they can.
