Cox Green School is a successful comprehensive school where student achievement is valued wherever it occurs. We use the phrase, ‘Catch them being good’ to remind us of the power of praise.

Examination results have improved significantly (nearly 70% A*-C) and progress is now judged to be in the top 25% nationally. Our curriculum is broad with older students taking advantage of a range of vocational courses while maintaining very high standards in the core areas of English, Mathematics and Science.

We receive additional resources in our specialist area of Performing Arts and Media. Over 40 productions a year builds student self esteem and has benefits across the curriculum. Our successful Rock Challenge team is a good example of the benefits this work brings. Our recent successes include being placed second in the South of England Final.

Visitors to the school regularly comment on the positive and welcoming atmosphere they experience. We are recognised within the locality as a genuine community school. We are described as being receptive to partnership working and our facilities reflect this, offering additional opportunities to our students as well as those of local primary schools.

The majority of the students live in the immediate locality of the school although an increasing number of students are drawn to us from more distant localities. Our receptiveness to change in the last five years is demonstrated by our introduction of vertical tutor groups, pastoral managers, our Innovate catering facility, our commitment to work related learning and our key role in the Maidenhead Federation.

Building work is currently in progress to relocate Holyport Manor School to the Cox Green Campus. We will remain separate schools but will continue to build on our close working relationship. As part of this development, the school has received significantly enhanced community facilities including a floodlit third generation all weather pitch, new gym and a changing rooms. In addition we will offer the Creative and Media Diploma in partnership with other providers and this will bring significant additional facilities during 2009/10. We hold Sportsmark and Artsmark Silver.
