“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” (Aristotle)

I am immensely proud to welcome you to the Magna Carta School; a vibrant, dynamic, non-selective secondary school that serves the local community and secures great outcomes for students.

Our core belief that ‘learning shapes lives’ is at the heart of everything we do. We are unwavering in our commitment to deliver academic excellence and rich experiences so that students can flourish, be happy and make a positive difference in the world.

We believe wholeheartedly in the power of teaching great lessons every day. The awe and wonder that the world has to offer is brought directly into the classroom by our dedicated and highly-skilled staff team. We empower students to excel in every aspect of their development because we are clear that everyone deserves a great education.

Our rigorous, knowledge-rich curriculum has been expertly designed and inspires curiosity in students as soon as they join us in Year 7. We instil a passion for learning and never stop encouraging our students to believe in their ability and strive to be the best version of themselves.

We take great pride in being an inclusive school that celebrates the diversity of our community and we are firmly committed to maintaining an environment where everyone feels safe, valued and supported.

Our students enjoy coming to school because we have fostered a culture of kindness, respect and empathy that permeates all aspects of school life. We are clear that developing the heart is equally as important as developing the mind so that students leave us having not only gained excellent qualifications but also having developed a strong set of moral values that are deep-rooted in kindness and gratitude.

Our website offers only a glimpse of our fantastic school and the sense of togetherness that we have embedded here, so to fully appreciate what we have on offer we warmly encourage you to come and visit us. We are the Magna Carta School and I very much look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful community.
