Welcome from the Headteacher

School Picture

Endeavour High school is an 11 – 16 Comprehensive School which offers education for approximately 500 pupils.

Outcomes of examinations confirm that pupils at Endeavour High School succeed and succeed well. Attainment and achievement is rising year by year and in 2011 we celebrated our best ever examination results.

90% of pupils achieved 5 or more GCSE or equivalent A*- C passes

100% of pupils achieved at least 1 A*-G GCSE or equivalent pass

The Gold Standard results have quadrupled since 2006 rising from 9% in 2004 to 32% in 2011; 5A*- C passes have increased significantly from 9% in 2004 to 80% in 2011. It is clearly evident that the upward trend in examination outcomes is gathering momentum.

A Real Community

We have high expectations of our pupils and we promote the qualities of tolerance, courtesy and hard work in the daily life of our school. Endeavour High School is proud to be an inclusive and restorative school built on six core values of respect, responsibility, honesty, fairness, consideration and loyalty. Our relationships with parents form the foundation upon which each pupil’s success is built. We look forward to working in partnership with all parents and other partners in order to bring about the best possible outcomes for children and share pride in their achievements.

No Child Left Behind

We recognise that young people have a variety of gifts and talents and attributes. Endeavour strives to offer a safe and stimulating environment where the cheerful, the considerate, the shy and the extrovert alike can flourish and achieve through companionship, challenge, encouragement and a lot of care. 

It is the responsibility of every member of staff to provide care and guidance to pupils. Each pupil has a form tutor who is the first point of contact for any concerns. Tutors are supported by a team of non-teaching pastoral staff which means there should always be someone available to take your call.

Preparing Learners for the Future

We are fortunate to have a highly qualified and trained staff that are hard working and committed to the school. We need to help pupils to develop flexibility and adaptability. Unskilled jobs are increasingly rare and we need to work with parents to provide the skills, experiences and opportunities that will be needed if pupils are to cope with the demands of the 21st century. We must therefore equip pupils with the necessary skills to use modern technology, learn independently, work in a group and lead a team. Such experiences come from lessons and also from our rich programme of extension activities, including sporting activities, Young Enterprise activities, Work Experience, residential visits abroad and those visits organised locally to places of environmental, cultural or religious interest.
