Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to our school and I really hope that this website gives you a flavour of Putteridge High School and what it might be like to be a student and a parent or carer here.

As a parent of three children I understand the importance of keeping students safe, allowing them to develop as individuals and encouraging them to follow their passion in life. We provide unique opportunities for all with a philosophy that is based on creating an atmosphere that allows students to become confident, independent and creative. The school provides a quality education where all students are encouraged and given a wide range of opportunities to enjoy and excel.

We aim to excite young people about their learning and to celebrate their successes. Our staff have a passionate commitment to inspire through excellent teaching. We welcome students of all abilities who are taught in both mixed ability and set groups. Excellent provision is made for all students including those who have exceptional gifts and talents as well as those who have a particular special educational need. There is no limit to what our students can achieve with self-belief and home support and no ceiling on what we can accomplish together.

I am inspired by our students and I am in no doubt that Putteridge High School is a very special place supported by a remarkably talented group of staff within a vibrant and diverse community. I am sure that you will agree once you have had the pleasure of visiting.

Mr David Graham
