Headteacher’s Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Dame Alice Owen’s School.

We are incredibly proud of our school and I hope that our website gives you some indication of the reasons why.

Dame Alice Owen’s is a school steeped in tradition and history.  It is a school of academic excellence and commitment to extracurricular opportunities.  Much of what we do at Owen’s is supported by the generous support of the Worshipful Company of Brewers to whom we are continually grateful.

We are a school which believes in helping our staff and students discover and continually develop the special skills and talents they have; we are unashamedly academic in our approach to the curriculum and teaching and learning underpins everything that we do.

Our close working relationship with our parent body is crucial to us and together we work hard to develop a keen intellectual curiosity in our young people as well as developing the skills they need to lead happy and successful lives. We place great emphasis on helping students become resilient to life’s setbacks through strong pastoral care and are proud of our traditional values of respect for each other, good manners and a smart appearance.

As stated in “The Owen’s Way,” we are a school keen to ensure we never stop learning and our teachers enjoy embracing the changes we feel enhance the education of our students. Our innovative approach to the curriculum and new technologies helps us ensure we are preparing our young people for a world, and indeed jobs, which have yet to be invented.

Our staff work tirelessly to provide the best education they can and our students are keen to push themselves to get the most out of every lesson we deliver.  We do not believe however, that education stops at the classroom door. Through our plethora of sporting, musical, dramatic, artistic, technological and enriched curriculum opportunities we aim to help our students become the very best, rounded individuals that they can be.  Moreover, we offer a vast array of educational visits for students to participate in so that friendships and the sense of school community are deepened.

There are numerous opportunities to visit the school throughout the academic year.  Please feel free to come and see what we do for yourselves!  The links above will help answer your questions about admissions but for specific enquiries about our school please contact us at the email address at the top of this page.
