Welcome to Spalding High School.

General - Mrs Anderson

The sense of community is strong at the High School; you will notice that the School has a special “feel” as soon as you walk through the door.  We are a forward thinking and progressive school with an outward looking curriculum and a rich and diverse extra-curricular programme.  Our commitment to developing the whole person prepares students well for the challenges and opportunities that they will face in the rapidly changing world in which they live. We value tradition and traditional values but not for the sake of it.

Personal development from childhood to adulthood is also of great importance to us. Our students grow into independent, articulate young women (and young men in the Sixth Form) who take responsibility for, and make decisions about their lives and their futures in an informed and intelligent way.  We are proud of our excellent pastoral care and guidance which ensures that no student is lost in the crowd.   We base all that we do on the mutual respect of all of the members of our School community.  Teamwork and friendship are important to everyone at the High School; we are all important cogs in a very big wheel.

Words and pictures can offer only a flavour of what we stand for.  There is no substitute for seeing the School as it is on a normal working day and talking with students and staff; visitors are always welcome so please feel free to contact us to arrange a visit.

These are the things that are important to us:

  • To strive for excellence in all that we do
  • To feel safe, confident and supported
  • To be inspired, challenged, and encouraged but also learn to be reflective and resilient
  • To promote and value educational achievement
  • To value creativity, artistic, cultural and charitable pursuits and hold them in as high a regard as examination success
  • To celebrate and take pride in each other's achievements as much as our own
  • To be honest with all around us and to be able to trust everyone to be respectful, friendly and polite
  • To value the worth of perseverance and determination
  • To be confident enough to take risks and to learn to be resourceful
  • To build friendships that in some cases might last us our lifetime

We are proud of our enviable reputation for being a friendly and welcoming School which works hard to support its students and provide them with an all-round education that will benefit them throughout their lives.
