We Care to Challenge

Pupil Premium Archive


At The Wavell School we believe in our school moto of ‘We Care to Challenge’ for all abilities of students, ensuring that we give them aspiration to progress onto Further and Higher education or apprenticeships. We have invested in overstaffing to ensure we have appropriate class sizes and are striving to ensure that all lessons would be judged as at least ‘good’. We have a Learning Support Team who are highly qualified. We are always striving to improve our support of the disadvantaged and diminish the difference in their progress.
