Headteacher’s Welcome

Sir John Talbot's School Headteacher's

Welcome to our school. Sir John Talbot’s is situated in the heart of Whitchurch and is a well-established, highly successful 11-18 secondary school. Our mission is to enable young people to be successful, creative, lifelong learners participating in a journey of self-discovery through the vision of ‘Achievement through caring’.

I am passionate about ensuring all our students see personal success in their journey through our school and Sixth Form, whilst growing as fully rounded individuals capable of accessing and achieving the very best that life has to offer. Students are expected to demonstrate Empathy, Integrity, Equality, Creativity and Excellence in everything they do. Our students and staff are proud to be a part of the school and the local community and engage fully with partnerships and organisations locally, nationally and globally as opportunities allow.

If you take the time to visit us or to delve into the content of our website, I trust you will gain a good insight into everything we have to offer. Please do read through our newsletters, parent bulletins, prospectus and policies to see how deeply we stand by our vision and values.

Mr David O’Toole
