Welcome to Southlands High School

As parents and carers your priority is to ensure that your child accesses a full learning experience which best suits them and enables them to reach their fullest potential, allowing them to be successful throughout their lives, whatever that means to them. My priority, along with the highly committed, professional and ambitious staff at Southlands High School is to make it become a reality.

At Southlands, we believe that academic achievement and personal growth for every child goes hand in hand; therefore there is high expectation and high ambition for each and every student, in terms of their learning and progress and in the mutual respect we hold for each other in our learning community.

Our curriculum allows students to develop knowledge, skills and understanding through experiencing a balanced range of subjects, delivered in a variety of ways for deep learning; this provides knowledge and experiences they will take into their futures. However learning is much more than acquiring knowledge to take exams, it is about learning about ourselves, who we are, how we relate to others and where we fit in time and society.

Therefore at Southlands we have a commitment to ensuring our students lead happier, healthier and fulfilling lives now, whilst also preparing for their futures.

I believe there are no limits to what a young person can achieve when they are afforded the right levels of encouragement and support; when they experience high quality teaching and learning each and every day and when there is strong partnership between students; their parents/carers and our school community. Working together we can unlock potential.

I look forward to welcoming you to Southlands High School in the future.
