Caldicot School is a successful 11-18 co-educational community school. It is a popular and oversubscribed school with a growing roll. We are the first choice for the majority of pupils and families in Caldicot and the surrounding areas. The school is situated on the edge of Caldicot town in 50 acres of grounds and 13 acres of playing fields, offering an excellent location which is both tranquil and safe for the pupils to concentrate on their education. In September 2017, the school benefited from a state of the art new build, which has provided a new and exciting learning environment for contemporary learning to take place. During the day the school is fortunate enough to have use of the extensive sports facilities at Caldicot Leisure Centre, including the swimming pool. Caldicot School, in educational terms, fosters respect for others, for property and for the school in an atmosphere which reinforces good habits and encourages pupils’ pride in themselves and their achievements. Attention is paid to the individual needs of all pupils to ensure that every child leaves the school achieving their personal best. We endeavour to secure a structured and orderly learning environment, giving all pupils equal opportunity to grow in an atmosphere which values effort and achievement. Different styles of teaching and learning and good relationships make it a school where pupils wish to be.
Caldicot School is committed to achievement through the promotion of excellence within a vibrant, purposeful working environment, which respects the rights and needs of all individuals, so that our pupils are able to acquire skills for adult life.
We aim to ensure our pupils:
- are happy and safe within a rich learning community;
- achieve their full potential, academically and personally;
- acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding to take their place as responsible citizens in society and within their community;
- value education as a life long experience that will continue into the world of work and leisure.
We will achieve these aims by providing:
- a high standard of teaching and learning;
- a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, suited to the abilities and individual aspirations of each pupil;
- opportunities for pupils to demonstrate responsibility and leadership;
- a safe and attractive environment which allows pupils and staff to celebrate their success.
Caldicot School is committed to the promotion of our core values, which encourage our pupils and staff to respect others within the school, the community, the country and the global environment. We will instill these values through honesty, tolerance, respect, self discipline, self esteem and responsibility.
