It is a founding principle of St David’s College that students will achieve success academically when they are happy, confident and engaging positively with their school, peers and teachers; hence our extensive range of extra-curricular activities which dovetail with a particularly broad range of traditional and vocational academic subjects. From our More Able & Talented students to those who struggle with their learning, we see this principle proved year on year as the vast majority of 6th Form leavers successfully gain entrance to university. St David’s College is a truly unique school. Our aim is to bring out the best in every pupil, whatever their abilities, strengths or weaknesses. We offer a mainstream academic education and we know that we do this very successfully but true education is not just about the transference of knowledge, it is about getting to the core of every individual in the most profound sense. Every young person should experience success in his or her life. Our pupil-centred schemes are carefully designed to enable this and our highly skilled and dedicated staff treat each pupil as an individual so that their gifts and talents can be identified and given the freedom to flourish.

Schools (Independent) in Harrow
Claremont Avenue, , , Harrow, Middlesex, HA3 0UH
Claremont High School Academy’s website has been designed to give you the information that we feel you will need to introduce you to our school in the hope that you will wish to find out more about our work by visiting us or by making more direct contact with us. Over the last decade we have been able to build on our success as a community comprehensive school firmly established in the highly successful Brent family of schools. The progress of all learners at Claremont has been exceptional over this period and year on year we have been able to push the boundaries to achieve a well deserved Outstanding OFSTED inspection outcome in 2010. We have achieved this long term success and set the foundations for continued success by making the most effective strategic decisions to employ additional specialist staff in all key areas of the school; to invest in high quality information, communication technology, and to develop a rich and responsive curriculum offer at KS3, KS4 and post 16. At the same time we have remained true to our ideal of educating the whole child in an atmosphere where learning is challenging and fun and where success is built upon excellent teaching and learning and high expectations. We have continued to create opportunities for staff, pupils and our partner community groups to engage in a vast range of enrichment and learning activities and ensured that these have led to positive outcomes for all. In 2002 Governors took the decision to commission a multi-purpose arts hall and followed this with a series of highly ambitious projects to modernise and strengthen learning facilities enabling the school to provide a sports complex (2003), new science facilities (2010, 11 and 12),a dedicated dining hall and kitchen (2011), a sixth form centre (2010), flood lit Astroturf (2010), a new reception (2011) and 13 new classrooms (2011 and 2012): all of this in addition to high level maintenance and improvement of a much loved school building. The decision to become a new style Converter Academy in 2011 has led to increased autonomy in many aspects of the work of the school, access to additional resources and a greater sense of accountability to the Claremont community.
Schools (Independent) in Altrincham
North Cestrian Grammar School, Altrincham, Cheshire, WA14 4AJ
In life, some decisions stay with us for a very long time. None more so than the secondary school we choose. Today, the range and quality of schools is more varied than it has ever been, but too often they deliver the same outcomes. We believe this is because they are not flexible enough to make the most of each individual student's potential. The result is that parents often feel that they struggle to find a school that is right for their child. North Cestrian Grammar School is different.Our aim is to develop potential, whatever that potential may be. We provide an education that encompasses both the hopes of the parent and the dreams of the child. We do this through our sense of independence and a set of clear targets for each and every pupil. This means every child leaves the school knowing they have succeeded in realising their potential, and confident of their own future success. When they leave our school, they do so with their heads held high, proud of their achievements and with a clear direction.
