We have high aspirations and instil a ‘can do’ attitude in all that we do, as a result we have a proven track record of success on many levels.
“Aim High means to reach my goals and achieve them” Diana Year 10
Our successful Business Action Group promotes aspiration through; careers insight visits, inspirational speakers and opportunities to enhance students understanding of the world beyond education. Students have had the chance to visit places such as Google, KPMG and Barclays. They also have the chance to hear talks from a range of speakers most recently these have included Mishal Husain, a BBC news and radio reporter, Deborah Landis, a Hollywood Costume Designer and Nagin Cox, a NASA Scientist. Following on from the talk from Nagin Cox, one of our students won a competition to go to Space Camp in the USA. An opportunity of a lifetime! We encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning. Students are set aspirational targets for success and regularly track their academic progress. This is shared with parents at our Learning Review Days and at Year Group Subject Parents Evenings. Our results are going from strength to strength. English Maths and Science have smaller class sizes to ensure learning is tailored to meet each student’s needs.
Over the last three years, our GCSE results continued on the upward trend with student’s achieving improved results year on year. English results are significantly above the national average for girls placing Sarah Bonnell in the top 20% of the country.
“From careers insight days to working closely with the School Council I have always been impressed with the level of engagement from the students. The school is well managed, focused and has a lot to offer prospective students.” Nicola King (Lawyer, Pinset Masons)
