Why come to Astley?
As Executive Headteacher, I would strongly recommend Astley Community High School as the High School for your son or daughter. At Astley we pride ourselves on being a school who knows your child really well both academically and pastorally as a human being.
We are a medium sized school and because of that we are far more able to respond to an individuals needs compared to bigger schools. The support you and your child receive will be second to none. We will do all we can to ensure your child settles into the school and then does as well as they possibly can.
On the academic front all of our students are closely monitored to identify if they are making the progress they should be and if they are not interventions are put in place to rectify the situation. As a school we put teaching and learning at the hart of every lesson and staff receive regular training to ensure they are always improving and this has an impact on the lessons they teach.
The school has facilities that both the community and itself are rightly proud of and we are updating these on a regular basis.
To sum up I recommend Astley to you because it is a school that is small enough to care but big enough to deliver an impact.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or the school.
Visiting The School
The school has an open evening in the Autumn Term, during which the Headteacher will explain to prospective parents and students why Astley Community High School is a good school. In addition, there will be a chance to meet staff and current students in teaching areas and to see the resources available at Astley.
Two open days will also be held during the Autumn Term. These provide an opportunity for interested parents to view the school with their sons/daughters.
All students who express an interest in attending Astley Community High School will be invited to spend a week with us during July. This will enable students to get a feel for the school, experience high school lessons and to meet and spend time with their form teacher and class mates.
Parents will be invited to an evening meeting in July during which they will be introduced to staff and learn more about the school and, in particular, the role of the form tutor.
Parents and students wishing to visit the school at other times will be very welcome to do so.
