A warm welcome from Matthew Brown, Head Teacher.
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. They also gained 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 Fair Trade school or being a member of our student learning consultant team.
The vision of Blackfen School is transported far beyond buildings and playing fields. Our ‘Connecting Classrooms’ project develops our international links with two partner schools in India and provides the remarkable experience of sharing professional practice and learning across the globe.
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.
