Head Teachers Welcome…
Welcome to Atkinson House…
It is with pride that I write to introduce myself as the Head Teacher of Atkinson House School. I would like to extend to you a warm welcome to our website. The whole ethos of the schools is based on care, responsibility and proactive behaviour management, where mutual respect is of prime importance.
The singularity of vision shared by staff enables us to provide the highest quality education and support for all our pupils. Indeed, staff will always go ‘the extra mile’ to create a caring environment in which young people are encouraged to manage and overcome their difficulties within a climate that promotes curiosity and learning; enabling them to be the best they can be. Our high expectations empower pupils to make outstanding progress academically, morally and socially. In addition, we focus on their place in the community, encouraging their development into active and responsible members of society.
The website will give you some information about what we offer but the best way to get a ‘feel’ for Atkinson House School is to come and see for yourselves. Please do get in touch to arrange a tour.
Should you decide that Atkinson House School is right the school for your son or daughter to flourish, I look forward to the next few years of our partnershipW P Sampson
Atkinson House School is at the early stages of revitalizing the Careers and Enterprise Programme. As a school we will establish a stable programme of careers education and guidance that will be known and understood by pupils, parents, teachers, governors and employers.
