About The Petersfield School
The Petersfield School (TPS) is a happy, thriving 11-16 mixed Academy with a commitment to securing exceptional student outcomes and an unrivalled student experience. Standards, stability and success characterise our successful Academy where over 1300 students thrive in an environment where behaviour is outstanding, relationships are excellent and opportunities are plentiful.
The school joined the highly successful Bohunt Education Trust (BET) Multi Academy Trust in September 2016. Our BET partner schools are located primarily in Hampshire and we are a community of education professionals whose approach is one which combines the highest expectations with a sensitivity to learners’ individual needs; concentrates on maintaining the very best standards of learning and teaching and takes every opportunity to recognise and reward achievement. Our ethos is encapsulated by three simple words: enjoy, respect and achieve. (www.bohunttrust.co.uk)
Examination results at TPS are high – consistently well above national averages – and we focus on the individual success of every child. Our recent student intakes are above the national average and bursting with potential.
Perhaps belying its rather comfortable setting in a peaceful Hampshire market town, TPS is a dynamic, innovative and ambitious school – well known for its developments in curriculum provision, professional development, leadership and student voice.
We have 140 Teachers and Associate Staff who combine effectively as a cheerful, supportive team. New staff are made to feel very welcome. Behaviour has been consistently judged to be outstanding by Ofsted and TPS is a school where you can really teach without distraction. Staff training and new staff induction has been highly commended, with our model adopted by several other local schools. We have an excellent reputation for the quality of our professional development including for Newly Qualified Teachers.
We currently operate a two year Key Stage 3 (Year 7/8) and a three year Key Stage 4 (Years 9-11). At age 16 many students move on to our joint Sixth Form provision in Liphook and there are opportunities for staff to teach A-Level there. Every year, ex-students gain admission to the most competitive Universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.
Our site is a lovely green campus with dedicated blocks for each subject and we have several state of the art areas including TheStudio@TPS and our floodlit 4G Astroturf pitch.
The school offers students a wide range of extra activities, which staff are happy to organise and attend. This includes Sport, our specialism of Performing Arts and the Duke of Edinburgh Award where we are the largest centre in Hampshire. New staff will be expected to make their own contribution to this programme.
Access to Petersfield is swift via the A3(M) or via Petersfield train station which is a short walk away, making it entirely possible to commute comfortably from Surrey in the north or from all points South.
If you would like to join an ambitious, exciting school where teaching is still a joy, we’d like to hear from you.
