Welcome to Enfield County School
I am delighted to welcome you to Enfield County School which opened in 1967 following the amalgamation of two well-established girls' schools, each with a long tradition of high achievement and academic excellence.
We are now an inclusive, multi-cultural comprehensive school with specialist Language College status where we offer an exciting and vibrant education for our students. Through a combination of high expectations, inspirational learning experiences and a safe and inclusive ethos, our ultimate aim is to prepare all of our students for life and work in the global community. Our teaching and support staff are of the highest calibre and work hard to provide all students with the qualifications, values and skills they need to become confident, independent learners able to cope with life both now and in the future.
Our high expectations include the excellent standards of behaviour crucial to academic success. Learning is at the heart of everything we do, and for effective learning to take place, there has to be high standards of behaviour. This is something on which we insist, both in and out of school, whilst working within the kind, supportive and respectful ethos that is the Enfield County of today.
Enfield County School is a lively and stimulating community with a strong sense of shared purpose. Staff and students have discussed and agreed a set of values, those things that are important to us and that make Enfield County such a supportive learning environment and the very special school community I am proud to lead.
We expect everybody who studies and works at Enfield County to support our values and ethos actively, working in partnership to facilitate the best education possible.

Our students feel very positive about staying on into the Sixth Form at Enfield County. The Ofsted judgement on our Sixth Form is ‘Outstanding’ (October 2012). The school offers the benefits of highly qualified teachers and excellent pastoral support as well as specialist accommodation for this most important phase of a young person’s education.
A Level Studies

The school offers a Level 3 BTEC course in Health and Social Care. This is a full time course over 2 years and includes work experience. The entry requirements for the course are 5 passes at GCSE at grade C or above or a merit pass in Level 2 BTEC Health and Social Care.
Studying at Enfield County
Post 16 courses are full-time. A level students follow 4 A level subjects in year 12, and 3 in year 13. BTEC level 3 students will begin the Extended Diploma course equivalent to 3 A levels. All students are expected to meet entry criteria for their courses for Year 12 and for Year 13. A new feature of their education for all the students will be having the independence to organise their own study time. The school has specialist study facilities in the Sixth Form area and the library as well as support for any students who need help to organise their time effectively.
After the Sixth Form
Post 16 courses are an excellent preparation for university and work. Most of our students go on to university and the school has a specialist UCAS support teacher to facilitate the application process. We are always delighted to welcome back our students to their Leavers’ “Oscar” Ceremony. This occurs in December following the publication of results in August.
