We believe in hard work, resilience and a determination to succeed, learning from the lessons of failure to become successful
We believe in raising the aspirations of everyone in our community of inspiring a belief that ‘anything is possible’ amongst our students, staff, governors and parents.
We believe in developing our students into confident, responsible citizens ready to play an active role in the wider community.
Our students want to learn, are enthusiastic about their education and are successful in achieving qualifications and progressing in their lives;
Everyone has talent. At Blackfen we find and nurture those talents, always looking for each student to improve, encouraging students to be positive about the future;
Everything is possible. Students, their parents and our team do their best in everything, with a single goal: to be outstanding;
Our students develop ways of behaving that will serve throughout their lives: they become ambitious, forward looking, and resolute;
At Blackfen school our vision is to raise aspirations and release the potential of every young person. We do this through our growth mindset culture which underpins our aspirational ethos. It is a privilege to work with all members of our community to ensure that we realise this vision.
Outstanding schools foster life-long curiosity about life: equipping students with skills and ambition; nurturing professionals whose passion is creating learning that inspires young people to pursue the very best in themselves and in their work. Our students achieve at the highest possible level. There is no ceiling to what they can do or achieve on their journey with us. Our students also gain experience to support their educational careers: performing a role in the school production or visiting galleries in New York, Madrid or Amsterdam; championing a bid to make the school a Fair Trade school or being a member of our student learning consultant team.
As Headteacher at Blackfen school, my passion is that young people enjoy their success in school, become mature, responsible, independent, outgoing and disciplined young adults and that aspiring to find and release personal talent becomes a life-long accomplishment.
Please feel free to arrange a visit to see us “in action”. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Blackfen school.
