Message from the Principal of Secondary & Sixth Form Phase, Mr. M. Hire
I am incredibly proud to be given the opportunity to lead Waverley School as Secondary Principal. Having worked for the Trust for the last two years (since January 2021 as Principal of Waverley Studio College), I’m delighted to continue to serve our community and secure the very best outcomes for our students. Following our Ofsted inspection in September 2021, I will endeavour to ensure Waverley Secondary and Sixth Form grows from strength to strength in our quest to be ‘Outstanding’.
Students that attend Waverley School are wonderful. They are keen to learn, have strong aspirations to be successful and come to school ready to learn. We are unwavering in our belief that every student deserves an inclusive learning experience that is tailored to meet their own individual needs and to help them progress to the next stage of their learning or working life. Furthermore, we are committed at Waverley School in ensuring the highest standards in all that we do, creating a culture of high aspiration amongst all members of our community and empowering students to become lifelong learners and develop 21st century learning skills that are so fundamental towards success in modern society.
We provide a broad and balanced curriculum where academic rigour is matched by an equally important love of the creative arts, music and sport.
Through our school values of Humanity, Equality, Aspiration and Respect we encourage our students to have high expectations, aim high, work hard and develop their intellectual powers to the full. To help our students to achieve this, we have skilful, committed, dedicated staff and a stimulating and disciplined learning environment.
We are very proud of our school community which is rich in cultural diversity and as a Trust we endeavour to promote ‘learning through diversity’ and celebrate different cultures throughout the academic year.
“Pupils have a strong understanding of diversity, respect and tolerance, including for different family lifestyles.” – Ofsted 2021
Our Sixth Form is very popular, offering courses that enable students to further their education beyond the age of 18, with many of them gaining their first choice university places.
“Leaders have developed a sixth-form curriculum to ensure the best possible outcomes for students.” – Ofsted 2021
I look forward to working with staff, students and parents to make Waverley School the best educational establishment in a community I’m proud to be a part of.
