Fitzalan is a thriving 11 to 18 community focused school, which has seen significant changes in investment over the last couple of years. We make no apologies for demanding high standards and high expectations knowing that this will enable all our learners to succeed and benefit from the many opportunities we offer. We aim to ensure that each student feels happy and challenged. Each individual needs to feel safe whilst respecting others. It is only then that students will become more effective learners. We want to challenge all, irrespective of ability levels, to achieve their best. Learning through partnership is key where learners engage with others through challenge and support. Fitzalan is trailblazing new ideas and methods to raise the achievement of all its learners, including our more able pupils, through many initiatives focusing on teaching and learning, such as the comprehensive use of ICT. At the same time we are, as part of our vision for the school, looking to further reach out and serve the needs of our community from morning to night. Our ability to do so is enhanced by outstanding facilities all recently opened such as, the eight pitch Gol five–a-side football centre (January 2006), sports hall (October 2006), refurbished swimming pool (June 2007), multi-media centre, performing arts centre and manufacturing and fabrication centre (all three September 2007). In May 2008 we recently opened our new hospitality and catering centre, expanded the Gol Centre from eight to twelve pitches and installed a climbing wall in the sports hall. During the past year cladding and windows on Upper School and Middle School have been renewed and investment in the school is ongoing. The new Leckwith Athletics stadium, immediately adjacent to the school playing fields, allows the school access to a full sized Astroturf pitch. If you would like to visit the school to see us in action please make an appointment to do so. You would be very welcome. Cath Bradshaw Headteacher
