Vision

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.

Values

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 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?

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

“I am delighted that William Farr C of E Comprehensive School has won an Educational Outcomes Awards. This recognises one important aspect of the school’s work but at SSAT we believe an outstanding school has deep social justice at the heart of its plan; it subjects that plan to constant challenge and innovation; and it liberates teachers to perform brilliantly in the classroom.
