Easthampstead Park Community School is a vibrant, cutting edge learning environment. Our school culture marries unswervingly high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and local community. Teaching and learning is at the very heart of our school, and drives everything we do. An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we passionately believe in investing in staff’s continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students.
This is a very exciting time to join Easthampstead Park Community School. In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas. We are now striving to be outstanding, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful. We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in, themselves, their school and their community.
If you feel you have the necessary skills, mindset and determination to join us on our journey towards ‘outstanding,’ we would love to hear from you.
Our School according to OFSTED (June, 2016):
“Progress in English has been well above average for the last two years.”
“Pastoral care is of a high quality.”
“The behaviour of pupils is good.”
“Since her appointment, the headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well. This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.”
Our vision is to deliver a school judged as outstanding, that lives up to its values and beliefs. Our sense of community is built around the quality of relationships between staff, students and parents with the emphasis on respect and pride.
