Towers School and Sixth Form Centre

Welcome to Towers

At Towers, we believe that, with access to a knowledge rich curriculum, unwavering high expectations of conduct and behaviour, an excellent welfare system and the very best teaching, our students can be exceptional. 

 Our vision  

We want students to leave Towers as confident young people who will aspire to great things. We want them to leave having developed the knowledge and skills which will allow them to do this. We want them to be good people, with their own moral purpose, treating others with respect and understanding, and having an appreciation of different views and cultures. We want them to care; to be eloquent and passionate; to be critical thinkers making reasoned choices; to have a vision of the world which extends beyond the boundaries of their town and their country; who are interested in what is going on in the world and care enough to want to make a difference.

We believe in the potential of our students and in our ability to help them reach it. We have, and uphold, high expectations of all of our students and, as such, we have high expectations of ourselves. We expect students to meet our code of conduct; we uphold a strong sense of discipline because we care. We want every student to learn in the most focused, calm and consistent of surroundings. 

 We offer a curriculum that stretches and challenges, where knowledge and revision is at the heart. We emphasise the importance of silent study and individual application which allows for pace and challenge in every lesson. We strive for consistency and fairness in all our dealings, being open about our expectations with our whole community.

We are proud of our strong welfare system which cares for and supports our children and their families. This stands at the heart of our school, ensuring the focus is on academic success. We encourage our students to be respectful in all aspects of their dealings with others. Through our curriculum and enrichment programme, we aim to inspire our students to develop themselves as individuals with their own skills, talents, character and passion.  

We are proud to be Towers School and we stand together.

We are #ProudtobeTowers
