Cantell Maths & Computing College is a happy, thriving and successful specialist school with nearly 1000 students.
Our broad and diverse curriculum gives all our students the chance to shine; from those with special educational needs to the most gifted and talented, every student can realise their full potential here and beyond.
Our focus on the social and emotional aspects of learning has built a supportive, positive and motivated approach to learning. We ensure our classes are stimulating, challenging and rewarding, allowing individual talents and strengths to develop and excel. Whatever the student's forte, we'll find it and foster it. We have created an environment in the school that promotes high standards, mutual respect and creativity. Above all, students at Cantell work hard and enjoy their learning.
Our students’ progress is central to everything we do. Cantell aims to develop students' understanding, knowledge and communication skills and promote their emotional, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We encourage students to take initiative and take responsibility for their own learning.
We provide a curriculum that meets the needs of all students, within a community with positive relationships at its heart: this is enabling all our young people to enjoy success throughout their time at Cantell, developing the skills and experiences which will increase their life chances and life choices in a fast changing and uncertain world.
Another year to be proud of...
Yet again we are extremely proud of our students’ GCSE achievements.
We are delighted that 53% of our Year 11 students achieved 5 A* - C grades including English and Maths, which is above the schools’ target and is evidence of sustained improvement at Cantell.
This confirms what Ofsted found, when they visited us in February this year: we are a school "on the up", making rapid progress & improvements in all areas of school life. We are doing all the right things to enable us to fulfil our vision of becoming 'outstanding'.
