Principal's Welcome including Ethos & Values

As a very successful comprehensive school located in North Bedfordshire and part of the Sharnbrook Academy Federation, we pride ourselves on our high academic standards, good behaviour and excellent teaching and learning. This has been recognised on many occasions by Ofsted.

We believe that all students can achieve and we encourage them to become lifelong learners, challenging and  supporting them to realise their potential. Our students regularly achieve some of the best exam results in the county and have been nationally recognised over the past five years by SSAT as achieving some of the best results in the country.

At Sharnbrook, we appreciate that there is more to school life than examination grades. Being a large school, we are privileged to have excellent facilities, a wide curriculum and extensive extracurricular opportunities for students. Sharnbrook is a school where effort, hard work and success is expected, encouraged and celebrated, and creativity is nurtured.

Our vertically structured pastoral system provides a very high level of care and support for all students and allows them to develop a sense of belonging to the academy community. We want our students to feel safe, happy and enjoy school and this aim is reflected in everything we do. Our hope is that our students leave school having fulfilled their academic potential and, just as importantly, that they have developed into responsible citizens who are ready to make a positive difference to the world around them.
