We are rightly proud of our school, yet staff and governors are all ambitious for Prospect and determined to raise further the standards achieved by our students. Prospect School hits the Top 100 Most Improved Schools 2005-08.

At Prospect we are committed to continuous improvement and the raising of educational standards. As a Specialist College in Sports and ICT, we aim to build on our current successful practice of developing young people who are physically, emotionally and educationally healthy. The concept of “personal best” is used to develop students who are determined to succeed with whatever academic, sporting or personal goal they set. We are very proud to be able to offer an extensive range of learning options, backed up by an excellent welfare structure. We encourage and project an ethos of mutual respect and support where the diversity of people’s backgrounds is used to enrich our community and everyone is treated with equal value and care. Our staff are committed to working in partnership with students and parents to widen perspectives, raise expectations, give encouragement and offer guidance. We celebrate and recognise all types of achievement to build self-belief and self-esteem and to create an enjoyable and rewarding learning atmosphere.

In December 2006 Prospect School was awarded National Healthy Schools status. A Healthy School promotes the health and wellbeing of its pupils and staff through a well-planned, taught curriculum in a physical and emotional environment that promotes learning and healthy lifestyle choices.
