Welcome to the Montacute School Website
discovered Montacute School in 1985 as a new
teacher, and now I am privileged to have returned as Head Teacher. For
me, Montacute is much more than a place where children and young people
learn. It is a place where people care about each other, where people
discover and explore their passions, and where everybody is heard. It is
a place where the quality of each moment is important not just as a
building block towards the future but also for itself.
learner is unique and it is our challenge to find the best way to
support them in their learning, and to make that learning really count
in moving them towards a happy and fulfilling life. Our partners – the
families of our learners – are an essential part of that, and just as we
aim to tailor our approach for each learner, so we want to work with
each family in the way that best suits them.
I am delighted to have returned
at a time when Montacute is about to embark on building a new school.
This will be the first purpose built premises we will have had, and we
want our next school building to be able to properly celebrate our
wonderful children and young people and give them a stunning new
environment that both keeps them safe and provides opportunities for
each one of them to enjoy and participate fully in life and develop
their skills and talents.
