Values and Vision
Taverham High School believes every student should follow their dreams and have respect for themselves as well as everyone in the school. The academy aims to set every pupil up for life outside of school by providing them with the life-long skills that they need. Students are encouraged to take part in extra-curricular activities. The aim of this is to make sure they are able to work as a team. The curriculum is one that is enriching and stimulating for all pupils. Teachers show the children that there are several paths to getting ahead in life, from going to university or finding the perfect apprenticeship.
“Overall standards achieved by pupils remain above average. Achievement is exceptionally high in mathematics, English literature and some sciences. Pupils excel in music, French and business studies. We found that the school’s caring, nurturing ethos and culture of high achievement is based firmly on the excellent relations promoted between pupils and staff. Pupils told us that teachers are approachable, know them well and are always there to offer help and support. They value this highly; praising the sense of community it creates and enabling them to feel totally safe, secure and generally free from bullying in the school.”
