It is with great pride that I introduce our school to you, at a time of innovation and opportunity. At Caldicot School we are seeking to enrich the experiences of our pupils through a dynamic education based on traditional values coupled with innovative learning, provided by experienced and caring staff, committed to the achievement of all pupils. Setting the highest standards in all areas of school life is crucial to us, centred around learning, behaviour, appearance, attendance and punctuality. These maintain an orderly and positive atmosphere where pupils and staff can flourish through mutual respect for all. I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Caldicot School. As a staff we are committed to the care of the individual and encouragement of excellence in all aspects of school life. Pupil achievement is our priority, realised by an inclusive school that caters for the needs of all, providing a rewarding experience, based on sound teaching and learning, leading to a range of career opportunities for all young people. I look forward to working with you and your child for the success of our pupils and the school.
Mrs S Gwyer-Roberts, Headteacher
Our aim at Caldicot School is that the children who come to our school will attain to the best of their abilities so that they are able to leave with the qualifications and the standards of self discipline that will stand them in good stead for their future lives. The pupils of Caldicot School have achieved some remarkable results in examination grades and we have entrants to all levels of further education with our pupils gaining places at a wide range of universities and colleges including Oxford and Cambridge. We also value a broad education where pupils can excel in their particular skills and enjoy the extra-curricular activities of a progressive school. The Governing Body supports the Headteacher and her staff in their high aims and objectives for the school and its pupils and we shall endeavour to go forward with these aims for the benefit of our young people’s development.
Mr P Nurcombe, Chair of Governors
