Values and Vision
In keeping with its comprehensive nature, Perryfields High School works hard to ensure that all pupils are given the proper amount of support required to allow them to succeed academically, particularly if they have a challenging background. The school offers special resources for students with behavioural problems, in particular, off-site provision run in conjunction with another local school is available. In terms of the wider school, Perryfields offers a deep and engaging curriculum for its students, with a wide range of subjects available in both academic and vocational setting.
“Pupils are generally assured and confident learners, especially at Key Stage 4. They understand how their attitudes to learning contribute to their academic success, and appreciate knowing their targets and how to achieve them. They appreciate how the mixed-aged tutor groups allow them to benefit from the maturity of older pupils and to act as role models for younger ones.”
