Welcome to The William Allitt School




William Allitt School


Our Vision

‘To be an outstanding school which is committed to providing high quality learning where our young people exceed their potential, have ambition, grow as leaders of the future, feel secure, seize all opportunities and develop the skills and attitudes for a fulfilling life’.


We’ve had lots of events to be proud of this term, including Year 7 showing amazing talent and confidence on stage at Burton Town Hall in ‘Poptastic’. With all students taking some part, and some great performances from the leads, we can clearly see some Oscars in their futures.

As part of their Opening Minds project, students in 7.1 organised a fundraising event for the British Heart Foundation on the 6th February, raising £280. This is part of a wider project that also includes learning for themselves and teaching others about basic first aid and resuscitation.

Year 11 are working hard towards their GCSEs, understanding that we are now into the last few, vital weeks before exam season starts. Over February half term many students attended ‘Maximise Your Potential’, a workshop to support revision techniques, as well as additional revision and catch up classes. Please check the website for details of revision and intervention sessions. We’re very proud of the commitment Year 11 are showing towards their learning – and we are all looking forward to the prom at the end of June.

The annual school ski trip to Austria was enjoyed by 43 students and we’re pleased to report that everyone had a fantastic experience – with no injuries! Video highlights will be available on the website and next year’s trip is being launched in assembly this week.

There are a number of parent events over the next few weeks. Parent Forum on 26th February (6pm in the school library) will be showing how parents can access information through the new SIMS system. The Opening Minds team, along with staff from the Maths and Science departments are holding an event for Year 7 parents on the 4th March and there is an event for parents of students in Years 7-10 who access learning support with the SEN department on 25th February. Letters have been sent home, but please contact the school if you need further information.

As always, there is lots more detail on our Facebook and Twitter pages which you may find of interest so please have a look - and

Thank you for your continuing support.
