At Plymstock School our mission is to empower young people, through education, to have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life and make a positive contribution to society. Our unique school culture is underpinned by the core values of compassion, collaboration and creativity.
We believe that key to achieving our mission, is giving every single pupil a broad, balanced and unashamedly academic curriculum, that has knowledge at its heart. The central place of knowledge acquisition within our curriculum is explicit and we provide rich and varied contexts for pupils to acquire, develop and apply this broad knowledge. Powerful knowledge takes a pupil beyond their own experience. It is knowledge that many will not have access to at home, amongst their friends or in the communities in which they live. We are all the inheritors of the great ideas, writings and discoveries of the past and the young people of Plymouth have a right to learn this knowledge.
We are an inclusive school, yet we are uncompromising in our belief that every pupil should study our full curriculum. We know that some pupils will need more help in order to flourish and we work tirelessly to make sure they get the right support to succeed.
By learning our curriculum, we know that our pupils will be provided with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life and make that positive contribution to society.
We take great pride that over many years every single pupil who completes their education at Plymstock School has successfully continued into education, employment or training, appropriate to their needs and aspirations. This is also true at the highest academic level and we are delighted to frequently have pupils gain places at both Oxford and Cambridge University.
Our pastoral care is exceptionally strong and we provide a safe learning environment in which pupils can thrive. Each child is enabled to develop the skills and knowledge required to be a responsible and well-rounded individual that is fully prepared for the demands of our ever-changing multicultural society and is well equipped for life in modern Britain.
Our facilities are of a very high standard and the school has benefited from nearly £3 million of capital investment, enabling amongst other things: the further enhancing of our sporting facilities, new classrooms and a 400-seater Arts Centre, with a dedicated, professional performance space.
We warmly encourage you to visit our school community.
