Amersham School is passionate in its drive and intent to challenge all students to realise their full potential. Our students are at the centre of every decision that we make. We are ambitious whilst valuing each young person, celebrating attainment, progress and endeavour in equal measure. Each of our students is recognised as an individual and we strive to create and orchestrate learning opportunities to support each and every one in becoming the very best version of themselves.
It is of the utmost importance for our students to become self-confident, positive and enquiring learners and this vision underpins everything that we do.
Our mission statement 'Live, Learn and Succeed Together' lies at the heart of our school. It is from this foundation that we build our team : Team Amersham. By valuing and supporting each other we are all able to experience personal success and happiness.
We are a happy school - this does not happen by accident but through intent. Our desire to provide an excellent education is partnered with nurturing, fun, camaraderie and opportunity. Our staff are all handpicked for their professionalism and their ability to be positive and cheerful. We offer a supportive and innovative working environment.
