Located in Luton, Bedfordshire, Putteridge High School has 735 students between the ages of 11 and 16 and became a converter academy in March 2017.
The School is dedicated to the education of the whole person within a caring community where each individual is valued. School Governors, the wider community, staff, parents, carers and students are involved in a partnership working towards success for those who come to the School.
Putteridge is currently on a journey of rapid transformation towards ‘outstanding’, with a growing student roll over the next four years. The School provides a balanced, inclusive curriculum with the aim of fulfilling the needs of each individual student as they prepare them for adult life, whether that is in further and higher education or the world of work.
Progress in the core subjects at Putteridge is good and they place great importance on success in English and Mathematics and results for students achieving and exceeding three levels of progress in both subjects remain consistent. Those with special needs are treated with equality throughout the School and a notable strength of the School is the provision made for full integration of students with physical or visual impairment.
At Putteridge education is not simply about academic success. It is about participation and achievement that goes beyond the classroom. In its broadest sense, it is about preparing students for life after school: about helping them to be successful, valued citizens. Students are engaged and challenged to achieve their full potential and the School has a deserved reputation for the quality and range of extra-curricular activities that they offer.
