Our 2020 Mission

We are successful

At Princes Risborough School in 2020, just as now, every child matters.  Our commitment to “enjoy and achieve” means that our students are as successful as they can possibly be during their time here.   They become knowledgeable, confident and independently skilful as learners and make great progress. Our students find the experience enjoyable and memorable.

We care

Every student joining the school feels safe, valued and well supported. We track their achievements and well-being closely, supporting them well when they need it and celebrating their successes. Students leaving the school have a clear idea of their future ambitions, ways to achieve these and have made wise decisions about their next steps in life.
