Introduction from the Executive Headteacher

I am very proud, as the Executive Headteacher of Cyril Jackson, to introduce you to this remarkable school.

The opportunity to educate children is a privilege and one that we take very seriously.  Cyril Jackson has a deserved national and international reputation for providing the highest standards of care and teaching to prepare our young people for happiness and success in their future learning journeys.

"I cannot wish for a better school because I know it is the best."

-  Parent

My philosophy is simple: to ensure all the children and staff in my care have high aspirations for themselves (and each other) and everyone is offered the very best learning environment to achieve success.  Inclusion is fundamental to this holistic approach and I ensure that each and every member of my school community is enabled to maximise their potential.

I firmly believe children get the best start in life at Cyril Jackson.  The school is a unique place - regularly described as warm, friendly and welcoming - and I take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Cyril Jackson.

Welcome from the Head of School

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Cyril Jackson - an ambitious, successful and inclusive community school.  The expectations for our pupils and ourselves know no bounds and we strive for excellence in all that we do.  

We lay the foundations for every child to succeed.  Cyril Jackson offers a curriculum which engages and inspires, a diverse range of educational visits and experiences, outstanding pastoral care and high expectations, all delivered within a happy, safe and supportive environment.  Our monitoring systems carefully track pupils’ progress and we ensure that targeted and personalised learning is promptly and appropriately introduced.

"As a result of outstanding teaching pupils make exceptional progress in reading, writing and mathematics."

-  Ofsted

The views of our children are valued and listened to; pupils are actively involved in decisions about their learning and well-being. In our caring and stimulating atmosphere, students are inspired to reach their full potential - intellectually, physically, spiritually and ethically.

If you are looking for the best school for your child and are considering Cyril Jackson, you are warmly invited to arrange a visit.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you and your child would like to learn more.
