Welcome to Warneford!

We are a friendly and successful 11-16 school serving the market town of Highworth and the surrounding area. We have a strong ethos and a proud tradition of academic excellence. We provide a safe, well-disciplined and vibrant learning environment and the quality of pastoral care is outstanding.

When young people join us, they become part of our family and we do everything we can to nurture them and enable them to reach their potential. Our House system forms the backbone of this and underpins so much of what we do: pastoral care, competition, rewards, student leadership and much more.

Everything the school does is based on five clear and powerful principles:

Excellence:  every student must aim for excellence in everything that they do

Aspiration:  students should aspire to do amazing things and not settle for just enough

Challenge:  we will improve students’ resilience and help them to adapt to face life’s challenges

Values:  our students will develop independence and confidence and become moral, curious and enterprising learners, leaders and adults

Community:  the school is part of local, national and international community and we will show our young people their place in this

Please take a look at the video above or browse our website to find out more. Of course, you are always welcome to come and visit us to see the school in action. I would be delighted to arrange a tour and meet with you personally to answer any questions you may have about our fantastic school.
