Welcome to Edenham High School
Edenham High School has established an outstanding reputation for providing a supportive environment in which children of all abilities can flourish. Staff are committed and caring, and work with parents to achieve increasingly good standards of learning and behaviour. An excellent curriculum is in place with a wide range of personalised options. The majority of year 10 and 11 follow a traditional academic pathway, with options for extension both in school and outside. A significant minority of students choose from a wide range of vocational courses both in school and in college for part of their timetable. This wide range of choices means that students finish Key Stage 4 well prepared to embark on further study at Advanced Level in the flourishing Sixth Form at Edenham or to compete successfully for an excellent job.
Edenham aims to be at the centre of the community, serving as the learning hub of an extended school. The school caters for the needs of students and their families in a way that promotes traditional values of courtesy, community spirit and tolerance at the same time as developing essential skills for the modern age. We seek to equip our students with the skills that give them the edge in an increasingly competitive market place.
As well as developing our students’ subject specific skills, knowledge and understanding, a crucial element of our plans is to develop our work in the area of social entrepreneurship. Through our own programmes and imaginative partnerships with other bodies we seek to equip students with the leadership skills, creative thinking, problem solving skills and social confidence that are vital in today's world. These personal, learning and thinking skills, so important to success in the workplace, will be an integral part of our curriculum offer.
Edenham has a strong reputation for having an innovative and personalised curriculum. We now seek to develop this further by working closely with our feeder primary schools and other sixth form providers to ensure that there are clear routes of progression in place for all our young people so that they are able to move with confidence between key stages, and can experience a positive and consistent learning experience from the age of 5 to 18 which will enable them to reach their full potential.
