In a rapidly changing world, we want to ensure that all our students at Icknield Community College are prepared and motivated to make a difference, both now and in the future and wherever they may go. Under our guiding principle of ‘Excellence for All’ we want all connected with the school to realise the potential they have in as many aspects of their lives as possible. Our Ofsted Report (July 2011) described the school as ‘a harmonious and cohesive society’, where ‘There is a shared focus on good achievement and high expectations’. This collective commitment of our students, staff, governors and parents to work together drives us to achieve the challenging targets of excellence we have set for ourselves.
We always aim to improve so that we can meet the needs of all students, guiding them to achieve excellence in whatever path they choose. We all take great pleasure in hearing about the successes of our students after they move on, whether at Oxford and Cambridge or completing their apprenticeship with flying colours. These successes are down to individual hard work and the individually-focused learning, challenge and support Icknield keeps at the heart of its teaching.
I hope this website will encourage you to visit us and find out more about what we are doing to shape the future of our school and the futures of our students.
Student Leaders operate throughout the school at all ages and make a significant contribution to what we achieve.
Year 11 take the leading student roles as Prefects and Sports Leaders. The Prefects, led by the Senior Prefect team, develop their own school improvement plan and work with the rest of the college through the council. Year 10 students run a four week Buddying Programme for all our new Year 7s that has a huge impact on how quickly these children are able to settle into a new enviroment. Sports Leaders in Year 10 take an active role in coaching younger students in a range of sports, both at Icknield Community College and our primary partner schools.
Lower years have an opportunity to represent their tutor group on the Year Councils and the Whole School Council and they are a major help to support staff on reception and environment duty.
