Welcome to Secondary
I am delighted to be able to welcome you to The Bay
We are a happy, vibrant school in which every student is given the opportunity to develop their talents and to flourish as individuals. Your child’s education is as important to us as it is to you and we are relentless in our pursuit of building a cohesive culture and curriculum that matches the varied needs of our students. As a relatively small secondary cohort, we are able to take a personal interest in the achievement and well-being of every individual.
Our motto, ‘Believe, Inspire and Excel’ is central to our philosophy. We are committed to making sure that every student makes outstanding progress and succeeds both academically and in terms of their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Indeed, we value a strong work ethic and aim to develop, sometimes hidden or unsuspected talent, into fruition.
We talk a lot about ‘Team Bay’. This is founded on a culture of togetherness: we share high standards and high expectations of everyone; we share a commitment to building positive relationships; we share a passion for our community; and we share an unapologetic belief that we can all excel and succeed. As a team, we care about one another and have a true sense of community.
Here at The Bay, we are committed to setting high expectations for the conduct of our students and believe it is crucial for there to be an established culture in which all are able to excel. We want all the children who come to The Bay to enjoy their learning and to become thoughtful, articulate, confident and responsible members of society.
Our personalised curriculum is enhanced by numerous extra-curricular opportunities, community and charity, working towards national and international competitions and a thriving House System. This encourages staff and students of all ages to work together.
Our website will give you a brief insight into our ethos and our work. I would, however, encourage you to arrange a visit so you can see for yourself what makes The Bay so special. Our students are our best ambassadors and they would love to show you around and give you a much better sense of why we are so proud of our school.
I very much look forward to meeting you.
Mrs Emma Bowden
