Coombe Wood School

Welcome from the Headteacher

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to our Coombe Wood School website. 

Since opening our doors to 180 fantastic year seven students on Thursday 6th September 2018, we have made great strides with our exciting new adventure. Staff and students alike are living out our mission statement and core values and I very much hope that by looking around our website, you will get a real flavour of just how important positive relationships are to life at CWS.

Of course, happiness and positive relationships are no guarantee of success and you will also want to know about our curriculum and how we are setting about the task of preparing our new students for success at GCSE, A level and beyond. With this in mind, I would direct you towards the academic section of our website to give you an overview of what learning looks like inside and outside of the classroom. The focus on learning and teaching at CWS is relentless. It is fair to say that lots of people invest every day in making our classrooms special places of learning. Our job is to make sure they stay special, every lesson, every day. That is why we the leadership group visit every lesson, every day.

At CWS we also believe that physical fitness is fundamental to all round student well-being, confidence and resilience. With the help of significant investment in MyZone technology, we are able to track the Health Related Fitness levels of all students. Again, have a look around our website and you will see more about the innovative work we are doing in this area.

We do not just have happy students, we have students who are going places and who, as our mission statement says, are given every opportunity to discover and reach their true personal bests. 

Mr B Laker, Headteacher
