'Developing potential. Celebrating success'

On behalf of the governors and staff, may I warmly welcome you to Cansfield; a long established, but constantly changing school.

Our mission as a learning community is our commitment to developing the potential of each individual student and to celebrating their success. We strive to provide an environment in which each individual is valued and assumes personal responsibility for learning and managing tasks. We believe that celebrating success motivates and energises every student to be the best they can be.

Student attainment is improving annually across the school and we enjoy a proud reputation for curriculum excellence, innovation and quality of teaching. Inspirational and hardworking teachers are recognised for their skills and professionalism and, some of which, are designated as national lead teachers, Advanced Skills teachers, national trainers and INSET providers.

We strive to provide an education that enables every student to meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of the 21st Century. We want our students to be multi-skilled, adaptable, positive, enthusiastic and able to demonstrate confidence and belief in their abilities. Equally we want students to develop compassion, care, tolerance and respect both for themselves and towards others. 

We are so proud of our achievements so far. Our future ambitions for our students remain fierce and undiminished and we believe that the next few years will be quite spectacular. 

Please take the time to read more about what makes Cansfield special.  If you have any further questions, or you cannot find what you were hoping to see on the website, please contact us for a personal guided tour. 

Mr. M. Southworth
