Welcome from the Head of School

As Head of School, I am delighted to welcome you to The Kidsgrove Secondary School website.

Kidsgrove Secondary School is very much a caring community, providing quality education to 11- to16-year-olds. We are proud of our inclusive and supportive environment.

Our vision is to simply ensure that we provide the very best inclusive educational experience – preparing and equipping the young people of Kidsgrove, Whitehill, Newchapel, Rookery, Harriseahead, Mow Cop and the surrounding areas for the next phase of their education.

Our school offers children a unique and inspiring curriculum, which enables them to meet their full potential, both now and in the future. 

Our challenging curriculum promotes the highest standards of literacy and mathematics skills, whilst allowing pupils to develop their curiosity, thirst for learning, a sense of personal wellbeing and a creative approach to their development and progress. 

We are fortunate to be part of the Shaw Education Trust and I am proud to be leading the school in what I see as a very exciting time in our history.

My very best wishes,

Karen Mitchell
Head of School
