Welcome to Bishop Fox’s School
Welcome to our website, if you require any more information please contact us. Our ethos is built upon a deeply held concern for the well-being, achievements and dreams of young people. I was delighted that the school’s most recent ofsted report which judged the school to be good to outstanding made the comment that:
“In this outstandingly caring and supportive environment, students are nurtured as individuals, enjoy their learning and achieve well”
We embrace the notion that young people should enjoy and achieve in their time at school. Whilst examination results are critical to children’s future lives, so too is a safe and happy environment within which they can enjoy the opportunities and experiences beyond the classroom that nurtures them to become independent learners and responsible adults.
Our KS3 and KS4 results have seen tremendous improvement in recent years and place us amongst the top performing secondary schools in Somerset and the top 20% of schools nationally. In 2008 the schools 5+ A/C rate rose to 69%. In 2009 the figure was 68% whilst the 2010 results saw a tremendous increase with the same measure rising to 81%! In 2011 standards continued to rise with 91% achieving the same benchmark. In relation to value added the school is now in the top two performing schools in Somerset.
Our responsibility and commitment is to enable our students to achieve and be at the forefront in shaping the world of tomorrow.
We welcome into our school community the parents of students who want to learn, experience and grow into informed, high achieving, well-rounded and delightful young people.
Please contact the school if at any time you would like to visit us and discover more about what we have to offer.
