Welcome back to the start of the Summer Term.
Year 11 students are gearing up to the final run in to their exams and all year groups will be having assessments at some point this term. The main school trip this year is a combined year group visit to Blackpool – many students are already counting the days off! In addition there will be rewards via Achievement Coordinators these are based on ideas that the students have put forward and include a variety of things such as afternoons off timetable doing team building activities and visits such as the one to the RAF held last term.
In preparation for the new school we decided to look at our school vision and mission statement. Over the past term, a group of stakeholders at Wentworth High School have worked hard to create a new shared vision and try to identify exactly what the school community think our school represents. They interviewed pupils, teachers, senior leaders, parents and governors in order to collate the ideas of as many people as possible who work or have some involvement with the school.
They asked a series of questions about what they believed the school stood for then asked for a series of words which describe our school. From this they drew out the words and ideas that were common to all groups. The vision they created describes Wentworth as a vibrant, inclusive and proud (V.I.P.) school and recognised that everyone involved with the school are indeed Very Important People. Our aim has always been to provide a happy and caring environment in which each pupil can achieve their full potential. Everyone is valued and thrives in a safe and supportive atmosphere. We welcome everyone to our diverse community and encourage friendly and mutually respectful relationships.
Everyone involved with the process, recognised that we all want to be proud of our school whether it be for academic success, sporting prowess or for the sense of community which exists. This makes Wentworth High School an exciting place to be. We strive to enable all our students to be lifelong learners, equipped to fulfil any dream.
Our school is also a vibrant school, where all students are encouraged to be expressive, creative and enjoy their time at Wentworth. We try our best to encourage learning to take place in a positive environment.
We look forward to moving into a new school soon and with this vision, we will be looking forward to more exciting times and a bright future for all our students.
