About The Endeavour
The Endeavour is a special school for children aged between 5 and 16. In December 2018 we converted to become an academy as part of KCAT, please click the link to view their website: https://www.kcat.co.uk . We place the child at the centre of everything we do. Our philosophy is that learning is a partnership of discovery involving the school, pupils, parents, and the wider community. It is through this philosophy that we seek to develop the intellectual, physical, moral and social potential of every pupil in the school. Our curriculum is designed to be well balanced, but at the same time addressing the individual needs of the child. The pupils are encouraged to become responsible and confident citizens, able to effectively express their needs, thoughts and feelings and respond appropriately to the demands of living in the community. It is our sincere aim that pupils will feel valued and in turn will value themselves and others. To speak with any of our Senior Leadership Team, please call the main office on 01277 217330.
