Mrs. Neale writes: I have great pleasure in introducing you to our school. Success at County Upper is built on a strong partnership between teachers, parents, students and governors; a partnership which flourishes in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect, where every individual is known and valued.
We are very proud that our young people feel secure and happy and enjoy coming to school and that our "'can do" attitude ensures that our students achieve excellent results at all levels of ability: results which reflect, and frequently exceed, their potential.
We put great emphasis on rigorous academic teaching, underpinned by a strong pastoral system which provides a caring, disciplined and structured environment in which to work. This is supported by a very wide range of extra-curricular activities, visits, enterprises and community links which provide our young people with a host of opportunities for personal development and enjoyment.
Our success has been recognised with a range of prestigious national awards and these are referred to in our brochure. Do talk to those who know us and take up my invitation to visit us: I am extremely confident that you will not be disappointed.
