Andrew Whittaker welcomes you to APS
I am delighted and proud to welcome you to our school.
At APS we pride ourselves on our excellent academic outcomes and our results speak for themselves, but school life here is so much more than lessons and qualifications.
Our comprehensive curriculum is creative and innovative, challenging and engaging, designed with a boy’s learning interests in mind. Boys learn best when they are curious and enthused by what they are being taught, and it is this type of intrinsic motivation that we encourage to inspire life skills and a love of learning.
APS is a non-selective school and we welcome boys of a range of abilities. Our staff are professional, skilled and creative and have high expectations of what each pupil can achieve. We nurture every child’s individual talent and celebrate their achievements. This, combined with excellent teaching and support, results in consistently excellent outcomes ensuring that every boy reaches age 11 ready and prepared to join the senior school that is just right for him.
I am proud to lead this school of amazing children, supportive parents, inspirational staff and experienced governors, all working together to make this the best place possible for our boys to flourish.
