At Townsend Church of England School we are committed to delivering the best possible education for our students. The school is inclusive in its outlook, and innovative in its engagement with students, parents and carers and the wider community.
‘Love Your Neighbour’ is our Bible-based vision and our aims of ‘Achievement For All’ and ‘Respect For All’ make it clear the type of education students can expect. We welcome students of all faiths and no faith.
We provide a safe and calm learning environment where every person matters, where no child is left behind and where every child has the opportunity to succeed. We are committed to ensuring that the learner is at the heart of everything we do. All students are encouraged to have high aspirations and to follow an ambitious school curriculum.
Students at Townsend are wonderful ambassadors for our school – hard working, enthusiastic, fun to be with and genuinely impressive young people. We have high expectations of them all and we aim to develop confident, resilient and independent learners.
I am privileged to lead a dedicated team of teachers and support staff who value the many and varied achievements of all students, including academic and wider successes. We recognise that everyone learns differently and that making mistakes and taking risks are both integral parts of the learning experience.
We were rated as ‘Good’ during our most recent Ofsted inspection (May 2018). Ofsted reported that ‘Pupils work diligently and with enthusiasm. Classrooms are calm and industrious environments and pupils routinely work hard.’
I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher at Townsend Church of England School. I truly believe we are an excellent school and we aspire to be the first choice of secondary school for all.
Mr Anthony Flack
