Normal photo 1477640450
The Cumberland School is a mixed comprehensive school with 1500 pupils on roll. We are an ambitious school, keen to improve on and exceed previous success. We serve, and are proud to do so, a rich, diverse and exciting community. We live and breathe our commitment to equal opportunities and inclusivity, and work hard to ensure that Cumberland is a cohesive, positive and exciting environment for all. Our fabulous site has the kind of green space, facilities and energy rarely found in inner city schools. There is a real sense of determination and an ethos of aspiration and support pervades all we do. The school moved into brand new premises in July 2005 and ten years on the building remains an excellent learning environment with outstanding facilities particularly in sport, IT, design technology and art. We are about to complete an additional extension to the building which will increase capacity and facilities in English and MFL areas amongst others. Cumberland is a forward looking school, creative and imaginative in its approach to ensure that a quality education is provided for everyone.

Our ambitions

Our ambitions are many, but at the heart is the determination to become an exemplar 21st century community school.

One which:

  • ensures that all pupils learn effectively and achieve the highest levels of achievement possible
  • ensures that they gain the knowledge, skills and qualifications that will set them up for success as adults
  • prepares them for the challenges and joys of the wider world
  • develops in each pupil the life-skills they need to be fulfilled and responsible citizens, whilst they are at Cumberland and after they have left
  • creates a working environment at Cumberland which is supportive and fulfilling for staff and pupils
  • offers a first-rate comprehensive education option for local families, helping to build a strong, integrated local community
  • contributes to a wider movement that is working to improve education and the life chances of those from disadvantaged backgrounds

Staff development is very important at Cumberland and we pride ourselves on a dynamic and supportive programme. All staff are encouraged to develop professionally and there is a full programme of INSET and support for Newly Qualified Teachers and those teachers who are simply new to Cumberland.

Newly Qualified Teachers can begin with us in the July. We also take pupils from a variety of PGCE courses. We provide all new staff with a laptop computer.

The school retained its designation as an ‘Investors in People’ school for the fourth time in March 2014. This is evidence of the strong commitment to and implementation of intensive training and development of its entire staff.
