About our School
It is with absolute joy that I look forward to working with you, to continue to support your child’s learning, challenging them to be ‘the best that they can be’ whilst at Edwinstree Middle School.
Thank you for the support and honesty that Edwinstree parents have shown me since September 2016. I look forward to building further trust and a good working relationship with you that is open and transparent. The capacity for the school to improve and return to ‘Outstanding’ is significant and although the school is moving forward, we are not complacent in acknowledging there is still more to do. The students are exceptional, the staff determined, and the Governing Body understand and carries out their duty with challenge, they are our critical friends.
Underpinning all of this is our Church of England status and faith, which supports each individual to flourish and challenges us to live life in all its fullness. At Edwinstree visitors and staff will often describe the “magic of Edwinstree”, we know this is actually the wonderful richness and set of concrete, historic and well-practiced Christian values of reverence, wisdom, thankfulness, humility, endurance, service, compassion, trust, peace forgiveness, friendship, justice, hope, creation and koinonia. It is these important values which inspire students to really become individuals who are proud and confident to face the next stage of their lives.
