Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Felpham Community College.

Choosing the right secondary school is a very important decision.  We hope that this website provides you with useful information and gives you a flavour of our school.  If you would like to visit us, or would like any additional information, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

Our latest exam results from summer 2019 were extremely positive with our highest number of students achieving the new top grade 9s and 8s.  Overall attainment in English GCSE was 77% graded 4-9 and in maths GCSE was 72% graded 4-9.  The commitment and support from staff and governors, in strong partnership with students and parents, has led to this success.

However, we recognise that great schools are about more than just exam results and we have worked hard to create an exciting, engaging and broad curriculum for all students.  At Felpham, we believe in getting the basics right so we have also focused on developing a safe, calm and purposeful learning environment with excellent student behaviour and a smart school uniform.

In March 2019 we had a short OFSTED inspection and were delighted to maintain our 'Good' status, which we have now held since January 2016.

Last year, the school underwent significant building work costing over £11.5M.  Students joining us in 2020 will benefit from fantastic modern facilities in our new three-storey block that replaces all of our older classrooms.  Whilst great schools are about the people in them and not just the buildings, the enhanced facilities at Felpham will be a massive boost.

Felpham Community College has moved a huge distance over the years but we are not complacent.  Our foundations are firm and our committed and enthusiastic staff are determined to create a truly outstanding school.  

We are looking for young people who we can inspire, support and develop to reach their full potential.  I hope you will join us.
