Welcome to Great Marlow School
This mixed school academy, situated on a site of 40 acres, educates more than a thousand pupils.
An innovative, exciting and inclusive curriculum is the strength of the school. A broad and balanced range of subjects are offered in differentiated pathways to ensure a challenging, and appropriate pace of work for every one of our pupils. The last Ofsted inspection rated the school as “Good” in every category. Building on what we have learnt the aim is to achieve “Outstanding” next time. This school does not stand still; instead it strives to improve for the benefit of all.
Ofsted were impressed with the core values embedded in the day to day running of the school: every person has the right to be treated with respect; to be included; to learn without distraction; to be safe and happy; and to have equality of opportunity.
At Great Marlow, we have invested funds to ensure that the learning environment is attractive, interesting and stimulating. GMS continually seeks ever more appropriate improvements to the fabric of the school, so that the pupils continue to be engaged with the quality education in an environment that fosters learning.
The recent completion of the Redgrave Sports Centre has enabled sport to flourish in a way Sports England would admire. There is an impressive sports building, which provides excellent rowing facilities, a sprung-floor dance studio and a fitness suite. Outside, there is a floodlit all weather pitch; six new tennis courts; netball courts and basketball courts. In addition, there are three football pitches and one rugby pitch. Importantly, all these sports facilities are available to the community outside school hours and in the holidays.
At present, there are 230 students studying a wide range of courses, applying for a wide range of universities or being accepted by a wide range of apprenticeship providers. It is important to the school that the courses delivered give pupils the best possible chance in the world of work.
Our motto is, “Creating Opportunity, Releasing Potential, Achieving Excellence” and this sums up what is at the heart of everything that we do.
