Deputy Headteacher – Matt Halls
Hello, My name is Matt Halls – I am a Deputy Headteacher with responsibility for the curriculum. This means that my role is to oversea everything to do with what students learn and how they learn it.
At The Radclyffe School we believe that the knowledge students gain whilst here is vital in providing them with the best possible chance of success in life. We are committed to providing young people with the very highest quality of education.
All children deserve the very best in order to fulfil their potential; we believe that academic success, complemented with life-enriching experiences will prepare them for success now and in the future.
Our vision is that every student who attends The Radclyffe School will have access to the knowledge that will not only allow them to learn the essential things across a range of subjects but enable them to build on this knowledge in the future and use it to make sense of the world around them.
We want all our students, no matter what their background or previous experiences, to leave school as well qualified, resilient, independent and confident young adults, ready to make a highly positive contribution to society. In a rapidly changing world we feel strongly that our students should show adaptability and resilience as well as demonstrating respect, kindness and tolerance of people from all faiths, cultures and backgrounds.
At The Radclyffe School, students study a broad range of subjects in-line with the national curriculum throughout year seven, eight and nine. During this time students will experience the all subjects that the school offers and therefore this provides them with that foundation of knowledge and experiences they need. In year 10 and 11, students continue to study the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, but choose which other subjects they wish to study in more depth at GCSE. Throughout out their time at the school students will take part in physical education as part of promoting their health and well-being as will as developing essential life skills and knowledge through or Citizenship and Values program

I hope you enjoy your tour and look forward to meeting many of you in person in future.
