Welcome from the Principal

A very warm welcome to Starbank School, a place where we want our pupils to be safe, happy and well and where we recognise and value the contribution of our staff and community to help our pupils achieve positive outcomes.

At Starbank School, we are dedicated to providing educational excellence for all of our pupils and committed to helping them to reach their full potential. In line with our mission to promote educational excellence, character development and service to communities, we ensure our pupils develop essential academic skills and prioritise the development of well-rounded individuals through participation in community, cultural and sporting activities.

We have a culture of high expectations and we continuously encourage our pupils to aspire to be the best they can be. We take a personalised approach, where pupils are set aspirational, but achievable targets through a curriculum pathway that meets their individual needs.

We strive to nurture confident, healthy and well-balanced young people who are ambassadors for our STAR values of Service, Teamwork, Ambition and Respect. We want all of our pupils to make a positive contribution as considerate members of society.

Starbank School is part of the Star Academies family, one of the country’s best performing multi-academy trusts. Our teachers and staff are experienced, well-qualified professionals who work together to deliver the best possible outcomes for our pupils.

By working with all of our stakeholders and with the support of you as our parents, we believe that we can empower our pupils and make our Academy the beacon for our community.
