The Observatory School

The Observatory School is a mixed 11-16 community specialist provision for pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH).
The main aim of our school is captured in our motto, ‘Working together to reach our full potential’. To achieve this staff and pupils work closely together and rely on each other to ensure each member of our school community achieves the very best they can.

The highest standards in behaviour, attendance and punctuality are expected from all and our pupils continue to live up to those expectations, and indeed raise the bar continually.

To reach their full potential, our pupils have access to a fully personalised curriculum. An industrious work ethic is expected and our pupils step up to this willingly.

Our pupils are always at the centre of everything we do. We insist on high expectations for everyone, at all times. Strict adherence to our uniform is expected, our pupils designed the school logo and were consulted at every stage in the decisions made regarding uniform!

We are all committed to the ethos that positive relationships are the basis for happy, successful students. Ensuring that our school environment is always positive with a focus on pupils feeling they are safe and secure is essential.
