There are currently 413 pupils on roll and the school has a two-form entry, with some classes containing less than 30 children. The Speech and Language Resource Base is an integral part of the school, the resource base children are included in all aspects of school life, with some fully included in mainstream classes. Set in extensive attractive grounds, the school buildings are spacious and very well maintained. There are two assembly halls, group work areas, individual classrooms, a superbly resourced library and an ICT suite. The school is decorated to a high standard. There are large playgrounds and a wide range of seasonal sports facilities including athletics track, hockey pitch, rounders squares and football pitches. We also have a maypole dance area and an adventure playground. A pond in the grounds is used to support the teaching of several curriculum areas.

In addition the school employs a full-time Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, a part-time specialist music teacher, part-time support teachers and teaching assistants. The school employs a large, enthusiastic team of mid-day assistants who work closely with teaching staff to ensure a well-managed lunch break. There are four members of the admin support team and their efficient and well-organised manner ensures that all aspects of school administration run smoothly. The full-time IT Technician and part-time Resources Technician work closely with all other staff. The Site Manager is hard working and thorough, and takes great pride in maintaining the school property to the highest standard. Fairways is a very happy, caring school with a dedicated staff who are working together to improve and maintain the quality of education at the school. The school had an OfSTED inspection in January 2008 to be told that Fairways is a good school with many outstanding features. The Healthy Schools Award and Artsmark were achieved in 2003, the NAACE Award for ICT in 2005 and the national IT Mark in January 2006. More recently we received the NACE Challenge Award for the provision we make for Gifted and Talented pupils, the Activemark for exceptional delivery of the National School Sport Strategy and was re-awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark in May 2008. Assessment of individual children and classes is kept centrally. The attainment and progress of every child is tracked and the information used for informed planning. Children and parents are kept informed of rates of progress and next steps. As a school we recognise the importance of Information Communication Technology for our pupils, as this will play a key role in their lives. We have a superb suite of 16 PC’s, as well as a wide range of software to support the children’s learning. Every classroom at Fairways has an interactive whiteboard in addition to a range of IT equipment, which is used across the curriculum areas. All teachers have a laptop computer. All computers are networked with broadband access across the school. Children are expected to behave well and the school’s behaviour policy is vigorously enforced. The policy identifies the three rights of all members of the school community, which are: the right to be safe the right to have respect the right to learn. It is the responsibility of all members of the school community to allow others their rights. These are based on the school’s core values of Respect, Responsibility and Perseverance. The school enjoys a high reputation in the promotion of a very positive Personal Social and Health Education programme. The Educational Welfare Officer, School Nurse and Community Police Officer are closely involved in its delivery. The school is committed to safeguarding and

Southend High School for Boys

The school was founded in 1895 and provided the first secondary education within the Borough of Southend-on-Sea. It moved to its present spacious site on Prittlewell Chase in 1939. Southend High School for Boys is a Foundation school within Southend-on-Sea Local Authority. It is a grammar school, with entry dependent upon performance in selective tests set by the Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex (CSSE). Since 2001 the school has been a Language College, promoting modern foreign languages both inside and outside the curriculum as well as within the local community. It was a founder member of Southend Excellence Cluster, supporting and collaborating with nearly thirty primary and secondary schools. In 2006, as a high-performing specialist school, we were invited to become a Leading Edge school, promoting innovation in teaching and learning in liaison with local partner schools. Pupil numbers have been increasing over recent years and currently there are 1020 pupils on roll with over 274 in the Sixth Form, including some girls in the Sixth Form. The aims of the school simply put are: • The pursuit of academic excellence • Stress upon the personal and social development of the individual • The fostering of a positive set of values • Preparation of pupils for a responsible and enriching role within society. The school was last inspected in February 2009 when the coments of Ofsted (the Office for Standards in Education) included: The school 'is an outstanding school. The school has maintained its exceptional performance over the years, and has demonstrated an outstanding capacity to improve further. Students relish rising to the challenges set for them'. 'Achievement is outstanding. Standards are exceptionally high ... As learners, students are accomplished, and ... teachers have an infectious enthusiasm for their subjects.' 'Students speak very highly of the opportunities on offer to them, which enable them all to follow a very broad range of interest. Sudents enjoy their time at school ... They are extremely self-motivated.' 'The opportunities for students to excel and foster their talents in music, drama, sports and science are quite outstanding. Students regularly win prestigious national and regional awards.' 'Personal development and well-being are outstanding.' 'The excellent curriculum enables students to achieve in many different ways and to enjoy their time at school.'

Southend High School for Girls

The school was founded in 1913 and since then generations of students have benefited from a rigorous academic education and positive, happy ethos. The school has always aimed to help young women develop independent, open minds, curiosity and a keen sense of responsibility. Now, we expect girls to go to the best universities and colleges and to embark on careers where they will flourish and influence their community in a rapidly changing world. Although we are nearly 100 years old we are full of energy and relish challenge and change. The school offers a varied, challenging and ambitious curriculum and an exciting array of extra curricular activities. Ofsted commented on the exceptional range of opportunities available to girls during their time at SHSG. The facilities too are modern and well designed.

Westcliff High School for boys

What we stand for Every School has its own ethos and identity. We believe this statement will be endorsed by the overwhelming majority of our parents present and prospective. *Westcliff is a caring, and disciplined School. No young person will learn effectively unless he is both happy and secure; unless his individuality is respected; his difficulties understood; his interests extended and his talent developed. At Westcliff we address the moral, spiritual, cultural and social as well as academic needs of each child. Discipline we have, and are prepared to enforce in the interests of the whole community, but our first responsibility is to encourage its development from within. *Knowledge and skills. We recognize that between the ages of 11 and 18 young people have to begin to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to equip them for adult life. Without these, they will leave School with few formal academic qualifications and they will be denied access to the more challenging, rewarding and satisfying careers. *Worthwhile activities and beliefs. Knowledge and skills by themselves serve little purpose unless those who have them have also a coherent set of values. We believe it is important that those in a position to influence young people try, with patience and sensitivity, to encourage them towards a respect for worthwhile activities and beliefs. *Academic Values. We hope that boys at Westcliff will acquire not only qualifications but a respect for scholarship and learning as things worthwhile in themselves. They should develop an appreciation of human achievement in art, music, science, literature and public life but they should also learn to think critically, to respect evidence, to distinguish between opinions and prejudices and to make balanced judgments of their own. *Personal Values. We try to foster a respect for the importance of work, self-discipline, initiative, reliability, punctuality and tidiness. We believe that it does matter how we dress, how we speak and how we conduct and organize our lives. It matters too that we have high expectations of ourselves. *Moral Values. We care too about conduct, about honesty, trustworthiness, integrity, tolerance and respect for the opinions, beliefs and interests of others. We care not only about what we achieve but how we achieve it. We try to encourage boys to recognize the inter-dependence of individuals, groups and nations, to understand that life ought never to be entirely self-regarding and to appreciate that we do have obligations to others and to the community. We believe that from those to whom much is given, much is expected. If a Grammar School education is a ‘privilege’, it should make us conscious of our duties. The ethic of service we regard more highly than that of self-interest: we are part of a community, not isolated and self-centred individuals. We hope that all parents with children at Westcliff will accept these as legitimate and worthwhile values and will work with the School to enable them to be part of the experience we offer to each pupil.
