Values and vision
Idsall School believes that every student should reach their full potential. By setting high standards not only in academic study but in all aspects of the school community the school seeks to inspire students in everything they do. The school is proud of its excellent reputation for the high quality of teaching and learning, as well as a friendly and caring approach.
Students have a fine reputation for outstanding behaviour, courtesy and respect which is regularly commented on by visitors to the school. A highly-committed staff team, including teaching and non-teaching staff, put in many extra hours to ensure that their students get an excellent all round education in order that they may achieve their very best and become outstanding citizens.
“In all lessons, the teachers create a positive climate for learning where all students feel comfortable offering their opinions, knowing that they will be listened to by adults and by one another with respect. Additional adults are used effectively to support the specific needs of some students who learn well as a result.”
