I am delighted to be writing a short new piece for the front page of our school website which has enjoyed a significant facelift this term. I am tremendously proud to be Headteacher of Friesland School. It is a truly great place of learning for young people where outstanding teaching gives our students enjoyable, engaging and challenging lessons right across our wide curriculum. Every child truly matters at Friesland, the success and happiness of all our students lies at the heart of everything we do.
Our traditional values and reputation that count for so much in the community remain central to all that we do and leave us very well placed as a school to meet the needs of the new curriculum and accountability measures that the Government has unveiled this year.
We recognise the need to meet the needs of all our students and we constantly strive to unlock the potential of every one of them whilst they are at Friesland. It is vital that students are both engaged and challenged by their learning. All of this is underpinned by an unrivalled quality of pastoral care across the school. Friesland is a place where young people feel safe and genuinely love coming to school.
I believe that we have achieved the above through strong strategic leadership from the Headteacher and Leadership Group, working with a conscientious and committed Governing Body, who constantly develop a fantastic team of talented staff and students.
Our website is designed to provide you with essential information about the school and to celebrate the many and varied achievements of our students. Please do send in your feedback on it as we constantly strive to improve all that we do.
