The Head's Welcome

Mr Chris C Muller, Head of Sir William Perkins's School

It is my pleasure to introduce you to our wonderful school – a lively and welcoming community where generosity, curiosity and ambition thrive, and where Great Things are expected. 

At Sir William Perkins’s School, students are at our heart. We expect the best from them, and in return they can expect the best from us; both in terms of teaching of the highest quality – where each individual is stretched and challenged – and in receiving the tailored support and attention they need to achieve.

We are a warm and friendly school: we know our students, their talents, hopes and aspirations, and we work with them to develop innate confidence, leadership skills and an ability to perform well with others.

With access to a diverse co-curricular programme, students are accomplished all-rounders with university statements studded with personal achievements and successes. 

Our students leave us in Year 13 with determination and clearly defined ambition – ready to make their mark on the world.

All students will be encouraged to get involved in the running of the School by taking on roles within the form and by representing their peers at School Council meetings, which are chaired by the Head Girl's Team.
