President Kennedy School & Community College
We are a rapidly improving school that has seen its examination results at Key Stage 4 and 5 improve every year. Our results in 2010 were the best ever achieved by our students at Key Stage 4. Our Post 16 sector is widely recognised as one of the best in the city in terms of raw and value added performance.
We are not complacent about our achievements and are utterly determined to provide opportunities for our students to make a difference in their own lives and in a more profound sense in the lives of others. We are committed to putting our students first in all that we do and ensure the students learn so that they can achieve both qualifications and the necessary life skills to be successful and live their dreams.
We are a Microsoft Partnership school, have a national reputation for our learning gateway enabling students, staff and the wider community 24/7 communication and access to learning resources. We are also sponsored by Apple who have helped us set up a TV Studio.
We serve an area which does have a very mixed catchment area where there is significant deprivation. We are a member of the Excellence in Cities scheme and are also part of the vibrant North West Federation in which five secondary schools, two special schools and one Further Education College work closely.
The school has much to commend it, and the Governors and Staff are rightly proud of the varied achievements of the students. The task now is to build on this success, to have even higher expectations of ourselves and to turn a good school into an outstanding school.
