On behalf of High Storrs School I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. We are a fully comprehensive school meeting the needs of all abilities across the 11-18 age range in a friendly, caring and hardworking environment. High Storrs is a specialist school for Performing Arts and also Mathematics and Computing and is well known for its high quality work in the Performing Arts.
In September 2011 we completed our BSF rebuilding and refurbishment programme. This has now given our students a learning environment which is second to none:
- New sports facilities (including a four court sports hall)
- New Drama studios
- New Dance studios
- New Design & Technology suites
Additionally, we have refurbished all of our classrooms and our School Hall has been redesigned in 1930s style, with state of the Art audio visual facilities. The refurbishment work was designed in consultation with English Heritage, who ensured that many traditional aspects of our school buildings were preserved. The work also includes: new sixth form areas, a new Learning Resource Centre, new Music Suites and a new Learning Support Centre.
Every individual matters in High Storrs School and we seek to encourage every student to develop their all round ability and special talent. Our students benefit from excellent teaching and a broad curriculum which challenges them to progress at a rate which ensures success. Several of our GCSE classes contain students from different year groups.
We have a very strong Primary School links programme and an extremely popular summer school for Year 6 students. This is well supported and ensures that students join our vertical tutor groups in a confident way which helps them to settle in and begin learning.
I hope that by visiting our website you get a flavour of High Storrs School. If you wish to follow this up with a visit, please contact me at the school or visit us on one of our many open events.
