Welcome to Townsend Church of England School
This school is open to everyone and you do not have to go to church to apply for admission – children of other faiths and those of no faith are very welcome at Townsend. As the only Church of England secondary school in this area, we offer something very special to all children and families: a long tradition of a high quality education which develops the personality and talents of every child in our care.
We are very conscious of our mission to provide your daughter or son with more than just academic success. We are a school with clear principles and ideals based on a strong ethos, and this philosophy is central to our success. Our great strength is that we keep reminding ourselves of what every parent/carer knows: children learn best when they are happy.
We provide a stimulating learning environment where all children can achieve, whatever their background, ability or aptitude.
All students are valued as individuals and all flourish in a community that lives by the values of tolerance, love, compassion and respect for each other. We uphold the traditional values of good manners and hard work and have high expectations of all our students. Our teaching encourages independent learning and provides students with those skills and qualities which they need to take them through the 21st century.
We instil a love of learning and offer a wealth of cultural, social and sporting activities through which your child can find and develop new interests and skills. I look forward to welcoming you and your son or daughter into our lively and thriving community.
