About Us

Headteachers Welcome

Making the right choice of secondary school for your child is a big decision, I thank you for your interest in Frederick Gent.

I am immensely proud of being Head Teacher at Frederick Gent School. We are a small school but with a big heart and with big ambitions. When I came to choose a secondary school for my own children I wanted a school where they would be safe, happy and successful. At Frederick Gent, we pride ourselves on the excellent pastoral care provided and the positive relationships that we foster across the schools – between staff and pupils, staff and parents and between the pupils themselves. The size of the school and the sense of community within it ensures that at Frederick Gent School every child is known, valued and matters. We have very high expectations for what our young people can achieve, not just academically but also through the personal growth and social development that we foster in the students at our school.

These values are encapsulated in our mission that, as a school, we will ensure that in everything we do we provide Quality, Care and Success.

This prospectus will give you a sense of how we deliver on these aims. We are a school with a broad and varied curriculum which allows pupils to widen their horizons and experience success in a variety of different subjects. We are also a school that provides an extensive range of extra-curricular activities to ensure pupils enjoy their time with us and are exposed to new and exciting opportunities which allows them to grow personally and socially.

We are determined that pupils will leave the school as confident and ambitious young people who are well prepared to embark on a happy and successful life beyond the school gates
