Tapton is an ‘outstanding’ 11-18 school (Ofsted 2012) with 1,700 students, including a Sixth Form of around 500, pleasantly situated in the south west of Sheffield and close to the Peak District National Park.
We see ourselves as a Sheffield school made up of a diverse community, yet we are all Tapton. Our ethos of valuing everyone, caring for each other and achieving excellence, underpin everything that happens in our school. We believe education should have a positive impact on all students and that Tapton is the right place for this to happen. We aspire to improve the life chances of all our students through ongoing progress and improvement in learning. We strive to make education at Tapton a transformational experience, regardless of ability or background, and our record of sustained success reflects our commitment to raising achievement for everyone. We have the highest expectations of all our students in every area of school life.
Tapton is a ‘National Teaching School’ – this means we have a commitment and responsibility to develop the educational experience across our region. Learning at Tapton isn’t just for students, we invest heavily in the continuing professional development of all our staff to improve the student experience.
Tapton is also the sponsor school for Tapton School Academy Trust which is a Sheffield, cross-phase multi-academy trust, currently consisting of eight schools.
