Values and vision
Waverley School values learning through diversity. Tolerance and acceptance play a huge part in its ethos, with students encouraged to show respect for other faiths and belief systems. The social development of pupils is considered to be of paramount importance to best prepare them for adulthood.
"Senior leadership is, once again, stable. It is increasingly effective. As a result, the quality of teaching has recovered and pupils' outcomes are good and improving further."
"Teaching is effective. It is particularly strong in the early years, primary phase and sixth form."
"Children get off to an exceptional start in early years. They settle very well into school life and make strong progress due to the effective teaching in this well-led provision."
The sixth form is effective. Almost all students achieve the qualifications they need to go on to their chosen higher education courses."
There is strict accountability between governors, trustees and the executive headteacher."
