A warm welcome from our Headteacher, Mr Paul Masher.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Alsop. I am both proud and privileged to be Headteacher of our caring, dynamic and truly amazing school. We are on a journey to excellence and our school motto of Achieving Excellence Together embraces this vision.

‘The Alsop Way’ is built upon the three pillars of Knowledge, Respect and Opportunity, and, underpinned by our Omega Multi-Academy Trust values, we are passionate about offering the best school experience for all our students. We want our students to grow with a pride in their local community and an understanding of their place in it; Inspiring Our Future.

As a parent myself to two young children, I understand that as parents we want our children to feel safe, happy and challenged to be successful in school. Pastoral care is a real strength of our school and this provides the bedrock for students to grow, develop and maximise the opportunities available to them to be successful.

We are committed to ensuring that our students master the knowledge, understanding and skills to ensure that they achieve great things, fulfil their potential and leave Alsop articulate, resilient, compassionate and culturally aware. Our talented and committed staff go above and beyond to ensure that every student is provided with the opportunities and support to be successful and achieve to their full potential.

We have developed a knowledge rich curriculum and believe that if children understand the purpose of what they are learning and why they are learning it, not only will they be more engaged but they are much more likely to remember what they have learnt and be able to use it again in the future.

We believe that for our students to fulfil their potential and be successful, they must have the opportunity to make the right choices and develop key learning habits so that when they leave Alsop they are not only prepared academically, but also inspired to make a proactive, positive and lasting contribution to society and live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.

We believe every individual has the ability to demonstrate our Alsop Way Learning Habits’, which are embedded within our daily practice and routines, and we will support you and your child to be ‘Ready to Learn The Alsop Way’. In doing so, each student will have the platform to thrive and be successful here at School and beyond in Higher Education, Higher Level Apprenticeships or in the professional world of work.

We are passionate about learning, passionate about personal development and passionate about forging positive working relationships with our students, our parents / carers and our wider community as we continue on our journey to excellence; Achieving Excellence Together.

I believe our school and our students speak for themselves, so although our website can provide you with a lot of information about our school, I would encourage you to arrange a visit during the school day so you can see first-hand for yourself ‘The Alsop Way’; you will be very welcome and I look forward to meeting you in the very near future.
