" There is a strong student voice. Students here are
very well prepared for life beyond school, through an excellent
citizenship curriculum, programmes of work-related learning,
and by acquiring high levels of competence in key skills. " - OFSTED
" The intervention and support programmes that are used to help the
students, whatever their level of ability, are typical of the
outstanding quality of care and support they receive from
teachers, support staff, learning mentors, other adults, and even
fellow students. " - OFSTED
" Lessons are crucial, but at Valentines we believe that our
students’ experience of school should be more than just
lessons. The school is a hive of enjoyable activities outside lesson time. "
" The high quality of our professional development for all staff was reflected in Valentines being one of
the first schools in the capital to be awarded the Pan-London Quality Mark Gold Award for CPD. " Read more about our Teaching School...
" Academic progress is assessed extremely well, and the mass of data that
is accumulated is used strategically both to plan the curriculum and to
set challenging targets. Students know what they need to do to improve their work. Lessons invariably
include a focus on success criteria, so that no one is left in any doubt what they must
do to achieve particular levels or grades. " - OFSTED
At Valentines High School our main focus is for our students to
achieve excellence in all that they do. Valentines is a
multi cultural, mixed comprehensive school, with around 1350
students. We aim to work in partnership with students, parents,
staff and the community to provide opportunities for all. Improving our
provision and that for students at other schools is an important
component of our ethos for Teaching School and Leading Edge.
