School Description

Pupils at The William Henry Smith School and Sixth Form benefit hugely from an array of experiences designed to enrich and nurture their understanding of the world. Pupils are happy because all adults take the time to understand and help them. Activities are tailored to pupils’ interests. During our visit, pupils enjoyed telling inspectors about activities involving the school farm, quad biking and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. The school is a calm, tranquil place. The environment is designed to ensure pupils can learn in surroundings suited to their needs. Behaviour is excellent. Relationships between teachers and pupils are incredibly strong. Pupils are not worried about bullying, but they know that adults would deal with it if they were. Pupils have aspirations beyond life at the school because they are constantly encouraged through a curriculum that focuses on enhancing their quality of life; this includes academic, social and emotional development. Pupils in Year 11 and in the sixth form are given expert help and advice to ensure they can access courses tailored to their interests and skills. Work experience is carefully planned and designed. Success is engineered in all aspects of pupils’ lives because adults take account of the special educational needs of the boys in every aspect of the work they do.
