Welcome to Valentines High School

At Valentines High School our main focus is for our students to achieve excellence in all that they do. Valentines is a multi cultural, mixed comprehensive school, with around 1350 students.

We aim to work in partnership with students, parents, staff and the community to provide opportunities for all. Improving our provision and that for students at other schools is an important component of our ethos for Teaching School and Leading Edge.

Our school motto is ‘In harmony, achieving excellence’ and everything we do is planned to enable us to achieve this vision.

At Valentines, we started 2016 with reflecting upon some of the major events that took place in the previous year, both nationally and internationally. Imam Haroon Patel led the House assemblies to introduce our “#My Truth Is” campaign. Both teachers and pupils put together a special message about our community’s reaction to some of the tragedies that have occurred in 2015. It’s a strong message about respect, tolerance and togetherness and it embodies everything that makes Valentines High School such a special place. Please take a moment to have a look at our video and it will be clear why our motto “In Harmony Achieving Excellence” is more than just words, it truly is a way of being in our amazing community.
