Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Fairfax, and a warm welcome from everyone connected with the school.

From the moment you enter the gates at Fairfax you realise what an extraordinary school this is. One that succeeds academically, through its amazing examination results both at GCSE and Post 16 level, but also one that develops the ‘whole person’. This is why I find it a privilege to be the Head of such a unique and fantastic establishment.

Education is the bedrock for a successful and fulfilling life. Our aim is to prepare each and every student to succeed in a 21st Century workplace and have the skills and competencies to do this. The curriculum underpins our ethos of creativity, innovation and mastering of the basics; reading, writing, communicating and mathematics.

We are proud of our pedigree both locally, nationally and internationally through our endeavours with the Duke of Edinburgh Award, World Challenge Expeditions and cutting edge Teaching and Learning initiatives. Our House system provides the support, challenge and competition to help students develop the confidence to achieve more and our Annual Eisteddfod celebrates our artistic talent. Fairfax succeeds in a variety of local and national sport team events; including our Physically Disabled students who regularly take part in regional Zone Hockey competitions.

My personal aim is to ensure that each student’s individual experience is as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. I believe in the basics and will relentlessly pursue excellence in punctuality, behaviour, uniform and respect for one another.  The mantra of ‘All of us, all of the time’ resonates throughout Fairfax in everything we do.
