Message from Headteacher Mr Wadwa
Choosing a secondary school is one of the most important steps you take for your child’s education. Our website should give you a clear idea of what we believe in and what we expect of pupils here at Featherstone High School.
Your son or daughter has the opportunity to join us at a truly exciting time as we continue to focus on ensuring we deliver high quality learning which is engaging and enjoyable for all our students. We continue to achieve record breaking GCSE results and we are regularly placed in the top 10% of schools in the country for the academic progress students make.
Our A Level results and progression on to top universities have proved beyond question that our outstanding provision is also firmly embedded within our Sixth Form. Nearly all students choose to return into the Sixth Form which is housed in a state of the art £10m building. We have a proud track record of success in supporting students to progress on to excellent universities and Medical Schools and our university progression stats are well above national averages.
It won’t take you long to appreciate that Featherstone High School is a warm and hardworking community striving for excellence in all we do. We want children to leave school having maximised their academic progress but also with fond memories. Whatever the criteria – academic, social and personal, or sporting, this is an exceptional school.
The high expectation of all staff and governors
Close monitoring of individual children’s progress
Talented, committed and hardworking staff
The wholehearted support received from parents and the wider community
Featherstone High School will continue to go from strength to strength, with a committed staff and excellent facilities set within a respectful community. Our students are here to learn and, make no mistake, we will have challenging expectations throughout their time with us. We are proud of our success and will ensure we do all we can to recognise and celebrate individual student achievements.
Our school motto “Together We Achieve” emphasises the importance of partnership in our success. We will ensure that parents are kept fully informed of our students’ progress and achievement in order to facilitate that crucial partnership.
I look forward to welcoming you to Featherstone High School in the near future.
Mr Gerry Wadwa
