Fairfield High School provides outstanding opportunities for learning across the curriculum. We also have a resource base for vision impaired and hearing impaired students.
Fairfield High School is part of the Excalibur Academies Trust and works closely with its partner schools to develop opportunities for staff and students, while remaining very much an individual school. The Trust has grown from two schools in Marlborough, Wiltshire, to 11 schools in four local authorities stretching from Bristol to Reading along the M4 corridor, providing high quality education to almost 4000 children from age 2 to 18.
The school supports employees in continuous professional development (CPD) and expects everyone to participate in the appraisal scheme once probation is passed. The aim is to raise the skills levels of staff to create a happy motivated and skilled workforce.
