Headteacher's Welcome

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the Kidsgrove Secondary School website. I hope that along with our Facebook page and prospectus, you can achieve a clear sense of what our school stands for and that we have the students at the centre of everything we do.

As a small secondary school, we are uniquely placed to care for each student as an individual. Our strength lies in our high expectations, positive relationships, and support for all of our students. We take pride in providing a friendly, nurturing, and welcoming environment for learning, regardless of background or prior achievement and where our students are given the skills and experiences for them to flourish.

Recently the school has undertaken significant renovation providing world class facilities along with an exciting, innovative digital strategy that brings state of the art technology to the classroom, with every student receiving their own iPad. This strategy ensures the highest academic standards possible with students utilising the very best of digital resourcing to maximise their learning and progress. This is supported with an ‘Immersive Room’ and ‘Virtual Reality’ suite that brings the curriculum to life.

The personal development of students underpins everything we do at KSS. Through this, students display positive attitudes and beliefs through the development of strong moral values that set them up for a successful life. With dedicated staff who can provide the necessary support and care, I believe all students can develop the skills to become successful.

Parents and community partners are so important to the school, and we encourage them to become part of our community through various approaches and opportunities. Working together we have the opportunity and responsibility to give our young people the best start in life possible.

The Kidsgrove Secondary School is a is a proud member of the Shaw Education Trust which believes that all children should have the opportunity to be successful, whatever their starting point. The Trust pledge an unswerving commitment to improve, accelerate and enable ambitious life goals for all young people in their academies.

I look forward to welcoming you to Kidsgrove Secondary School at some point in the future; and I hope you enjoy browsing our website.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
