Headteacher’s Welcome

A warm welcome to Pears Family School website.

Thank you for visiting our website. I am delighted to welcome you to our school.

The Pears Family School is proud to be a tolerant and caring learning community welcoming students from all cultures and faiths. Our vision is to provide vulnerable young people and their families with a therapeutic, nurturing, as well as academically rigorous, learning environment.

We offer a broad curriculum which supports and challenges every child to be the very best they can be and ensures they are able to make outstanding progress. Each student at The Pears Family School receives academic mentoring and pastoral care according to their own individual needs, and we pride ourselves on our personal approach with both students and their families.

Like all outstanding schools, harnessing the views, thoughts and ideas of our students and their families is key to our future. Through dialogue, target setting and multifamily group meetings, students and families are able to shape their own learning environment and contribute to the school’s plans and aspirations.

We endeavour to put the family at the heart of our school community

The unique character of our school is evident in our name. We endeavour to put the family at the heart of our learning community, developing resilience and social competence skills from which the whole family benefits. We encourage parents to get involved in the life of our school and feel free to have a look at our website for further details.

Having enjoyed two successful years as Deputy Headteacher I was delighted to be appointed as Head teacher from September 2018.  I am determined to continue to build our staff team and to strengthen our learning our community.  I hope that you enjoy the website and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any queries and suggestions. You are very welcome to get in touch if you would like to arrange a visit.

Very best wishes,

Matthew Hillman
