Southborough High is a non-selective academy school for boys between the ages of 11 and 16, and boys and girls post 16. The roll is just over 800, over 200 of whom are in the sixth form. Southborough High is a thriving school which is continually developing and improving and has a very good reputation locally. The school provides a high quality of education in a happy and purposeful atmosphere.
The current Headteacher took up post in November 2011 since when a wide range of improvements have been achieved. Our OFSTED Inspection in December 2013 was very successful and catalogues a range of high achievement by pupils and staff. All applicants are invited to read the full Ofsted Report which is available on our school website. Southborough High has a reputation for innovation which will attract teachers who are both enthusiastic and ambitious. There is a real welcome for new staff who bring new ideas, commitment, energy and professionalism to our school in order to help every student realise their true potential.
The Staff here are over 48 teachers, a third of whom are women. With the increase in pupil numbers there has been an influx of new staff, creating a positive blend of more experienced colleagues with youth. Both Ofsted and Investors in People remarked upon the happy working atmosphere which is both supportive and collaborative. There is an active Senior Management Team comprising from of the Head, two Deputy Heads and two Assistant Heads. Academic and pastoral matters are viewed coherently and the roles of the tutor, Head of Year and Pastoral Support Officers are pivotal to the process of developing the whole child. Heads of Department lead curriculum areas along with the support of specialist subject teams.
Heads of Year and Pastoral Support Officers provide a focus for personal development and academic progress. We are also fortunate to be served by an excellent Learning Support Team, led by our SENCO, which includes a School Counsellor and many teaching assistants. There are also peripatetic tutors for several musical instruments. The Support Staff play a crucial role in the organisation. There is the Head’s PA, PA to Deputy Heads/Clerk to Governors, a receptionist, a bursar, a finance assistant and clerical assistants (all of whom work in the main school office), a librarian and library assistant, two laboratory assistants, an ICT technician, two Technology/Art technicians and a resources assistant who provides a comprehensive reprographics service to support learning. There is also a Site Manager and his assistant who maintain the good appearance and cleanliness of our site and buildings. There is a great emphasis placed upon staff development. An appropriate induction programme exists for all new staff (including newly qualified teachers). Appraisal is fully operational in the school involving all staff. There is also an active staff social committee.
