Welcome to The Polesworth School

I am privileged to lead The Polesworth School.

Education brings with it the responsibility to prepare the young people in our care for happiness and success in their adult lives.  Polesworth provides care, support and guidance to ensure that your son or daughter achieves their full potential.

Polesworth takes great pride in shaping the academic, pastoral and social aspects of your child’s life. This is based upon fundamental basics that include trust, respect and quality first teaching.¬† Students in our care thrive and flourish to become well-balanced and well educated individuals who are empowered to make effective contributions to their wider community.

The educational landscape is changing dramatically and Polesworth responds superbly to these changes through our curriculum offer, the high quality of teaching and learning that takes place every day and our innovative practice.

We very much look forward to working in partnership with you in guiding your son/daughter through the next stage of their development.

I would warmly welcome you to Polesworth to see for yourself the mix of warmth, fun, strong relationships and personal and academic achievement that makes Polesworth so special.

Year 11 Pre Public Exams

In order to assess the gaps in knowledge and skills for Year 11 we are planning to hold Pre Public Exams (Mocks) from Monday 7th December and will last approximately 2 weeks.  Due to the present Covid situation we are avoiding holding exams in the gym and hall in the usual way. Instead the exams will take place in the allocated classrooms for Year 11, under formal exam conditions following the school Covid precautions.

Exam Timetables

Mask Wearing

Masks or face shields are mandatory during lesson time and during movement around the site. Where students do not have a mask or a shield they will be given one and if a student is unable to wear a mask or a shield they will be expected to carry an exemption card which can be downloaded from the Department for Education website.

Given the current national situation we must all do what we can to minimise the risks to ourselves and each other.  As a school we will continue to review and modify our processes in light of national guidance.

If you have any concerns please email admin@thepolesworthschool.com.

Kind regards
