About The Spires College

Our aim at The Spires College is simple: to make certain that every young person achieves their true potential.  Our ethos centres upon a love of learning and upon developing every member of our College community as an independent learner, who knows how to learn and is helped to develop the resilience and determination to tackle all the challenges that they will meet – at College and beyond. In this way, our students become successful and fulfilled life-long learners.

We prioritise the professional development of our teachers so that their knowledge is current; their skills are honed, refreshed and invigorated.  I want our teachers to enthuse and inspire others; to explore new ideas and opportunities for, and with, your children.

Our students are involved in every aspect of College life beyond the classroom: extra-curricular clubs and trips are always available but our students also take an active role in shaping the future of the College through a wide range of student leadership activities.  Our students leave this College as rounded, confident, independent young adults, ready to take up their places in society and equipped with the means to seize their futures.

If you would like to see what our College has to offer please do come and visit us to find out more:  I would be delighted to meet you.  Please contact my PA to make an appointment.
