William Farr C of E Comprehensive School aims to provide the highest quality of education whereby everyone is encouraged to strive for excellence in all that they do and each student is known, valued and achieves as an individual.

The students consistently attain high standards of grades, and their behaviour in lessons and around the school is exemplary – not only do they respect one another, but they have respectful and excellent relationships with all the staff.

We are always striving to improve our already strong partnership with our students and their parents, if you are a parent of a student in the school, could you help us by completing this OFSTED questionnaire?

Congratulations to you and everyone at your school on your excellent performance last year. At SSAT we believe it’s important to celebrate and share the success stories of schools across the network who have gone above and beyond, so I’m delighted to announce that your school has won two SSAT Educational Outcomes awards: your school is in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and the top 20% for progress in the 2017 end of KS4 examinations. This is based on your students’ best 8 average point scores at key stage 4.

‘I am delighted that William Farr CofE Comprehensive School has won two Educational Outcomes Awards. This recognises an important aspect of the schools’ work, but, as we know, there is much more to recognise in a good school like William Farr CofE Comprehensive School. SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors.’

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT
