Values and vision
Bowland High believes that because it is a small school, it is much easier for staff to get to know all pupils. The whole school community is able to understand the specific needs and interests of individual students and to monitor their progress. The secondary school aims for its pupils to thrive in a secure environment, where students learn from each other as well as from their teachers.
Bowland High prides itself on being a school founded on mutual respect and responsibility, with high standards of behaviour. It considers itself to be forward-looking, but it is also proud of and true to its heritage.
“All pupils progress to further education, employment or training as a result of exceptional careers advice and guidance. Staff give wholehearted support to pupils to enable their transition to the next stage of their lives. Pupils are taught to respect people from other backgrounds and to treat people fairly. They are actively encouraged to make a positive contribution to society. As a result, they are exceptionally well prepared for life in modern Britain. Staff training programmes encourage staff to be reflective practitioners, always looking to further improve.”
