Headteacher - Ms Claire Powell
I am delighted to welcome you to the Wombourne High School website, which offers a wealth of information about our school, our vision for the future, the flourishing developments taking shape at our school and the many successes and achievements of our students.
We are an ambitious and supportive school, committed to providing all our students with the best possible education. We are proud of our team of dedicated staff who provide an inspiring, structured and supportive learning environment, in which every student is challenged to realise their full potential and encouraged to be ambitious for their futures. We believe that everyone has potential: our commitment is to help each young person to make the most of their abilities and to achieve their goals. We believe in high academic aspirations for every student, and we achieve these aspirations through our core values of hard work, positivity and kindness.
At Wombourne High School our students work hard. They are courageous and determined in the pursuit of their goals, and resilient to setbacks. We help our students to understand that effort now will help ensure their success in the future. Our students know that every step they take forms part of their journey to success, and we help them to understand that long term goals are achieved by taking small steps every day.
Through our positive environment, we always promote the highest possible aspirations for our students and encourage a ‘can-do’ attitude. At Wombourne High School we believe that anything is possible, and our students are challenged to do their best, to never give up and to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. We encourage students to demonstrate positivity by involving themselves in all aspects of school life and are committed to providing unique opportunities and experiences that lead to happy, healthy, and successful futures.
Finally, and most importantly, we expect all our students and our staff to show kindness: to treat others as they wish to be treated, to be respectful, fair, and compassionate. Our students are polite and courteous, and always happy to help others. We are privileged to help our students develop their sense of responsibility and respect for themselves and the world around them and celebrate diversity through our inclusive culture.
At Wombourne High School we recognise the importance of good examination results for our students’ future success, but we know that these alone are not enough. To secure places at the best universities and on the most prestigious apprenticeships, our students also need to develop their wider skills and attributes so they can take their place as positive and independent members of society, ready for success in any pathway they choose. Learning at Wombourne reaches far beyond the classroom; we offer an enriched, enjoyable curriculum and encourage all students to get involved in the wider life of the school, offering extra-curricular activities in a range of areas such as sport and the arts and an extensive variety of educational visits and opportunities.
Wombourne High School looks forward to an exciting future, with fantastic exam results, extensive opportunities for students, and a successful Sixth Form, with work starting shortly on our new state-of-the-art building which will provide outstanding learning facilities for all students.
Our vision is to develop students who are confident, independent and resilient citizens with unlimited aspirations, who leave our school equipped to be successful in any pathway they choose. If this matches the ambition you have for your child, I hope that you will visit Wombourne High School to see the exceptional opportunities we offer.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
