Dream. Believe. Achieve.
Welcome to the summer term and, for me, the start of my
second month as Headteacher of Cowplain Community School. As I write this, our Year 11 students are moving
towards the last couple of weeks of GCSE examinations before they embark on the
next stage of their lives. It’s no exaggeration to say that the results of
those exams will shape their dreams and aspirations for the future and set them
up for rewarding and successful lives. I became a teacher and, 18 years later,
a Headteacher to play a part in helping young people to realise those dreams
and I get a great deal of satisfaction when bumping into ex-students, or
hearing about their achievements, knowing that school played a significant part
in their success. It’s why I always ask young people what they dream of doing
with their lives and how they can achieve those dreams. It’s also my job to
give young people the belief that, with hard work, those dreams are obtainable. These thoughts have shaped the creation of
our new school strapline: Dream.
Our strapline summarises our work at Cowplain: the commitment
to enabling young people to shape their dreams and the instilling of the belief
that they can be achieved.
