Inspiring Excellence

Coombeshead Academy is a high achieving 11-18 Comprehensive School with approximately 1000 students.

We pride ourselves on providing: a breadth of experience for students, high quality teaching in a calm positive working environment which is focused on learning and development at all times.

Every young person has a value and a talent and it is the job of those in education to develop this. At Coombeshead Academy children come first.

Ofsted reported “The headteacher’s commitment to further improve all aspects of the school is shared by all staff and governors”

The values of cooperation, tolerance and courtesy underpin all aspects of school life and we ensure that students feel happy, safe and valued.

Learning, respect and enjoyment are at the heart of all we do based around our five core principles:

  • Positive Attitude
  • Achievement
  • Community
  • Enrichment
  • Endeavour

I am proud to be the Headteacher of Coombeshead Academy and the Executive Headteacher of the Secondary Schools in the Templer Academy Schools Trust.

Working in partnership with parents is essential to ensure that your child is safe, happy and achieves throughout their time with us.

Our team of highly professional staff look forward to welcoming you and your children to visit our school.

Matthew Shanks – Executive Headteacher
