Values and vision
At Waseley Hills High School, gaining qualifications is important, but it is also believed that education should be about learning for life and enjoyment. The school aims to "feel different" and provide a warm atmosphere of community spirit and "looking forward to learning".
The secondary school’s primary focus is on creating rich learning opportunities for its students. At Waseley Hills High School, it is believed that if students have the belief and the motivation, they can taste real success. The school endeavours to make learning an enjoyable process because it recognises that when people have fun they are happier, and that when they are happy they learn better.
“The results show that teaching is now good in the main school and in the sixth form. This was confirmed by observations of students’ learning during the inspection, looking at their books, talking to students and examining records of their progress. Teachers’ good subject knowledge often inspires students to want to learn more, and teachers’ expert understanding of examination requirements gives their students confidence in how to succeed. Many teachers provide clear success criteria or information about how students will be assessed.”
