Tavistock College - Together: we care, we challenge, we excel

Principal’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. Tavistock College is an ambitious, successful and friendly school. Co-operation is at the heart of what we do and we take pride in striving for the highest standards together. Our aim is that young people leave us as happy, well qualified, confident, caring and motivated citizens who will go on to flourish in their lives.

As a College we are driven by a sense of the moral seriousness of what we are about; by a conviction that learning should be joyful; by a belief that we are an inclusive community in which everyone is equally valued; and by a determination that each of us will become the very best person we can be. As well as a challenging curriculum, we offer many opportunities to widen our young people’s understanding of their role in the community locally, nationally and internationally.

We are part of a wider Co-operative Trust with 10 local primary schools and together we work for the benefit of children in all our schools. What unites us are the co-operative values of solidarity, self-help, self-responsibility, equality, equity and democracy. Co-operation gives our daily lives meaning and ensures that no one is left behind in building a strong community of learners.

I hope you will agree with me that Tavistock College is a wonderful place for young people to learn and develop in, and that having looked at our website you will want to visit us and see for yourself.
