It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Tiverton High School. Let me share with you my beliefs and priorities. I believe education is the greatest gift we can give our children. With it our sons and daughters can make their way in the world and look forward to a full and fulfilled life. Without it, life is a constant struggle. Consequently making the right choice of school is vital. We all want our children to be happy at school. I am sure that you will gain the sense that ours is a happy school. Students feel comfortable and ‘at home’. All our staff, teachers and our valued support staff, are committed to the school and the community. Young people are at the heart of everything we do. We all want our children to flourish at school. Government statistics and OfSTED reports show students at Tiverton High School are successful. Teachers are able to challenge their students because they know them very well and engage with them as individuals. They know that there is no such thing as an ordinary child; that every child is extraordinary in some way and we are all committed to releasing that individual spark. We believe that inspiration is the key; children are fires to be lit, not urns to be filled!
