Welcome from THE HeadTeacher
Welcome to Shaftesbury High School, I am delighted to be the Acting Headteacher. I take such pride in sharing that Shaftesbury is forward thinking with a wonderful blend of nurture in all that we do. Shaftesbury is a happy and safe school where students are encouraged to carve their own pathways to achieve their goals.
The dynamic curriculum offered since 2018 has proven to have evolved from strength to strength. Each student has wellbeing lessons daily as we are certain that when we place our wellbeing first, we are better prepared for learning and embracing all aspects of school life. We extend our thinking and planning in preparing students for employment. We have an employability focus, a growing digital focus and clear ambition to enable each child to flourish through our meaningful mastery project curriculum. We are proud to have embedded the Restorative practices approach and have seen the lifelong benefits to this model already!
We are an outward thinking community and we encourage collaboration, networking and sharing of best practice where we can. We are incredibly proud of our recent OFSTED inspection of which we are rated “Outstanding”.
Please do search through our website or feel free to call us should you require any further information.
