Coombe Wood School

Welcome from the Headteacher

Nicole Williams Headteacher Coombe Wood School

Welcome to Coombe Wood School – it is a privilege to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school community.

Although CWS is still in its infancy, we are fortunate that our school is already rich in tradition which provides a strong and secure platform for success. We believe that outstanding teaching and learning is at the heart of our school and our collaborative approach towards pastoral and curriculum leadership, working in partnership with one another, safeguards the very best attainment for students.

Our students are truly exceptional and I am impressed every day with their ambition, dedication, enthusiasm, humour and pride in their school community. Students thrive at CWS because they are happy and safe in our nurturing environment, all underpinned by the high quality pastoral care.

The health and happiness of our students are a priority and this is grounded in our approach to Health Related Fitness. We believe that being physically active is fundamental to the development of the whole child as it enhances their confidence, resilience, and wellbeing.  This does not mean that academic success is left to chance. Students enjoy first-rate teaching in a superb learning environment, on our modern site. My talented staff are ambitious for our students, and are committed to improving the quality of their work to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential. 

Our curriculum is broad and ambitious for all students and coupled with the wider curriculum, we have all the ingredients to give our students the very best education; full of rich opportunities, to ensure they develop into caring, healthy, confident, well-rounded adults, equipped with the skills and qualifications, preparing them for the next phase of their lives.

I hope you will find the information within our website useful, and that it gives you a good flavour of our school; its remarkable students and staff, as well as its achievements, values and ambitions. However, the best way to experience what CWS has to offer is to visit us. 

I very much hope that we will have the opportunity of welcoming you to in person, but in the meantime please feel free to contact either myself or the school office on any matter.
