Sheldon is a great school with fantastic pupils. We are proud of each and every one of them and we hope that you decide that we are the right school for your son or daughter.

Some recent quotes sent to us from Year 7 parents

"I cannot believe how quickly my daughter has settled. She absolutely loved camp and is always talking about her new friends and teachers."

"The way in which the older pupils interact with the younger ones is a credit to the ethos of the school. The prefects have been excellent in helping with a successful transition from a small primary school to a large secondary school and everyone always has a smile and a hello."

"When we looked around Sheldon I knew it would be our first choice school. So far it has exceeded expectations. Every single member of staff that my son has met (and he seems to meet a huge variety!) has been friendly and helpful. I always hear how happy and upbeat people are."

"Your sixth formers are a real credit and superb role models. I would be proud if my son leaves Sheldon with their values and standards."

A quote from a letter sent to us from a Year 12 parent

"Our own children have very different interests and abilities, yet Sheldon seems to meet all their needs, whilst at the same time making their learning fun. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have our children at such a good school and we are extremely grateful for all the hard work that goes into making the school so successful and such a happy and caring place to be."
