About The Arnewood School

Headteacher's Welcome

The Arnewood School is a successful comprehensive school for students from 11-18 years old. Our students are a pleasure to work with; intellectually curious, empathetic, and fun, they continually challenge themselves and strive for great personal success. This is coupled with a body of dedicated and passionate staff who are driven to deliver the best possible provision to our students, to help them all overcome their personal challenges, to ensure all doors remain open to them, and to empower them to achieve their dreams. Our expectations are high and, as a result of a stimulating and enriching curriculum and our celebration of personal success and individual talents, students acquire skills of leadership and teamwork, become confident and enthusiastic learners, develop varied sporting, creative and academic talents, and are thoughtful and valuable citizens.

We seek to maintain a calm, happy and purposeful school environment based on an inclusive culture of mutual respect. Central to this is our partnership with parents which we know is crucial in helping students achieve their full potential. We are proud of the members of our community, our facilities, and believe that every student should and can excel whilst in our care.

This website aims to provide you with an insight into the values, character, and ethos of the school, but to fully appreciate what Arnewood has to offer, we warmly encourage you to come and see us at work. You are welcome to visit us at any time during the year.
