Felixstowe School

Headteacher’s Welcome

Many thanks for taking the time to enquire about Felixstowe School.

We are proud to be a comprehensive school, where students from all backgrounds and abilities can come together to be part of our school. Students can be proud to be a member of the Felixstowe School community, and of the wider community within Felixstowe. Our core values of Inspiration, Influence and Integrity are at the hear of what we believe. They are fundamental to us creating an environment for all students to aim high, work hard, and be kind.

We want our students to achieve their full potential, enjoying an education that develops their skills and enhances their strengths and aptitudes. We also recognise that each student is part of a wider, national and global community outside of Felixstowe, and to this end we want our students also to develop into outstanding citizens, and contribute to the society in which they live.

Attendance to school is incredibly important; we know that students who attend at least 95% of the time have much better outcomes, and develop the habits that will serve them well in their adult lives. Our attendance team and the wider school team are here to support you with this.

The Felixstowe School staff, and I, are looking forward to working with you, and would encourage you to share your thoughts with us on how we can enhance the provision for your child.

The service that our school provides is the singularly most important service a family can receive, and we strongly believe that this service is best delivered in partnership with you, the parents and families. As a team, we can build strong foundations that cross both home and school, so that your children can go on to happy and successful futures as adults, and always remember that they are, at heart, Felixstownians.
