Our school is a relatively small 11-16 comprehensive on the outskirts of Stoke-on-Trent, located about half-way between the Potteries and the market town of Leek.
Our 700 pupils are representative of the area: some are from rural, farming families and others opt in from the nearby Stoke suburbs.
We are a true comprehensive, welcoming pupils from the full ability, social and economic ranges. We are also fully inclusive regarding pupils with physical disabilities, and are very aware that we all benefit from working together.
Endon High is significantly popular with parents who would like their children to enjoy the many positive features of our school. The school is fairly small in size, and for this reason every year large numbers of parents are disappointed in their hopes of a place here.
Our academic standards are generally high, comparing well with both national and county averages. However, we believe that education is not merely about examination results, and we are committed to a broad and balanced experience generally. We provide a rich range of residential activities, trips and visits, opportunities for performance through concerts and shows, for achievement through sport, and for citizenship through involvement in a wide range of community-based and service activities.
We strongly believe that the school is a community which succeeds through partnership between pupils, teachers and parents, and that the strength of our school lies in its staff - teaching and non-teaching - who are true professionals, and (what's more) seem positively to enjoy the company of the young people in our care!
We are proud of our pupils and are delighted to celebrate their successes and good qualities whenever possible: their strengths are the school's strengths.
Across the Trust we pride ourselves on our innovative approach to curriculum design. We want our pupils, regardless of their starting points and barriers, to believe their curriculum is bold, exciting, purposeful, and ultimately leads to something meaningful for them.
We constantly seek to innovate and provide better opportunities to develop both knowledge and skills for life. This innovation comes in many forms, including extending school days to provide a world-class enrichment programme and additional opportunities for essential skills development; the introduction of vocational and technical pathways to develop work readiness in our pupils, supported by leading employers and universities; co-constructing curriculum across all EBacc subjects, to create world class programmes, rich in knowledge and skills; We are also driving PedTech across the sector, focusing on fully digitally enhanced curriculum and close to 1:1 device delivery.
We are currently at an exciting point in our evolution, with collaboration at the heart of our endeavour. We value the 'power of the pack' and strive as a collective, ensuring no school or colleague is left behind.
We take an evidence-informed approach to developing the quality of our teaching and learning and value a non-hierarchical, supportive approach to developing great teachers.
This approach has led to a significant reduction in workload, meaning colleagues can spend more time on curriculum delivery and fostering strong relationships with pupils.
As a people-focused trust, we consider the professional development of our staff as a fundamental responsibility. Where any schools face any barrier, it has the mutual support of the others to call upon for subject specific or general support. Our directors have a wealth of leadership experience and subject knowledge and support staff across the trust to design and the deliver the very best academic experience to our pupils.
