A Message from the Headteacher

Headteacher - Mr Alastair Ogle

Welcome to our website

I hope it gives you a flavour of life at Alderman Peel High School. Staff and students alike are rightly proud of our school and the education it provides and are continually striving to be even better. We currently have just over 400 children on roll. This number is gradually increasing due to our many successes including our curriculum, the progress children make, the educational opportunities we provide, our determination to provide the best possible education and our caring environment.

It is always pleasing to have endorsements from external agencies including Ofsted who in December 2012 rated the school as Good, who recognised the superb behaviour from students and the dedication from staff in helping them succeed. We have also been awarded Leading Edge Status because of the excellent progress children make and in 2013 we celebrated the best GCSE results the school has ever had. We will be breaking this record again in August 2014!

At Alderman Peel High School we know all our students as individuals, so talent and ability are never allowed to slip through the net but, equally importantly, we value the whole child, and we pride ourselves in helping children become confident, positive, determined and fully equipped for the future, whatever it may hold. In return we have high expectations in attendance, punctuality, behaviour, how the uniform is worn and the quality of work produced (including homework).

Our federation with Wells Primary and Nursery School (also a Good school) means that we have one high quality Governing Body across the schools ensuring children are at the forefront of everything we do. We have a huge number of active links with the local community and our feeder primary schools of which there were sixteen in 2013. Many children travel considerable distances to benefit from what we offer. Alderman Peel High School is a learning community known for its excellent teaching and learning.

This website will only give you a glimpse into life at Alderman Peel High School and the education we can provide for your child. Do come and visit us; meet students, teachers and staff; we look forward to showing you around our school.
