Values and Vision

The Henry Box School’s motto is “to learn, to inspire, to achieve”. The school values pupils who have positive attitudes, are respectful to themselves and others and those who are ambitious. It also believes children should be treated as equals, become resilient and be proud of the work they do while at the school. The Henry Box aims to enrich and challenge the minds of each pupil. The curriculum will always be relevant in the modern world and aims to encourage the children to be eager to learn. 

Ofsted report

“Teaching is mainly very engaging and good or outstanding and that is why students' progress is rapidly improving. Higher-ability students achieve better than similar students nationally. Middle-ability students in English and lower ability students in mathematics have shown rapid improvement during the academy's first year. Students, including some supported by the pupil premium, in Years 7 to 9 who have difficulties with literacy, and sometimes with behaviour, improve very well through specialist teaching. Students’ behaviour is good and they feel safe at school. Senior and middle leaders are very effective in managing the improvement of teaching.”
