I am delighted to welcome you to the website for Ely College and to introduce myself as the new Principal.
I take up post under challenging circumstances but I want to reassure you that staff, the Governing Body, and I, supported by CFBT Trust, are committed to rapidly improving the outcomes for all students at the College.
The summer term is always a busy one and ours will be even more so as we support our Year 11 and Sixth Form students during the public examination period. There is also a full calendar of events, which we are committed to following and I will give further updates on these during the term
In the meantime, I look forward to meeting you and working in partnership to ensure your child achieves their very best and enjoys their time at Ely College.
We are seeking to build on the strengths of Ely College. Please see our Statement of Action (Improvement Plan) here.
Schools are obviously very important places for the development of communication skills.
Children are born to explore, to investigate, to delve. It's what they do.
Education is important for its own sake, but it is also critical for future employability
An holistic approach to education has a profoundly positive impact on academic achievement
Creativity is widely recognised as one of the most important skills for life in the 21st Century
If students are to engage in ‘deeper’ learning, they will need new forms of enriched and ‘deeper’ support
Achievement is good. Many more students are taking and succeeding at traditional academic subjects. The progress that students make from Year 7 to Year 11 has improved in both English and mathematics.
