William Farr (C of E) Comprehensive School's vision is to provide all members of the school community with the opportunities to engage with 'life in all its fullness' (John 10:10) through the highest quality of education, encouragement and endeavour. We are committed to striving for excellence and ensuring that all students are known, valued and can achieve.


Our core values are:

Compassion    Friendship        Perseverance 
Respect           Responsibility   Wisdom

Each value is associated with one of our Houses.

The students consistently attain high standards of grades, and their behaviour in lessons and around the school is exemplary - not only to 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
