Buxton Community School

Why Choose Us?

Our School is part of Embark Federation.  We are required to set and publish our own admissions criteria.  

Our admission applications are managed through the Derbyshire Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme and are in line with the Derbyshire Admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools. 

One of the most important decisions you will face as a parent is the choice of secondary school for your child. Buxton Community School is passionate about the education of all of our students; we are driven by a commitment to the development of your child, academically, socially and spiritually.

At Buxton Community School we aim to achieve the highest standards in all elements of school life and beyond and meet this through a focus on a number of key areas:

Experienced Leadership  and Inspirational Teachers

We have a passionate and dedicated team of senior staff and outstanding teachers who are driven by the desire to see young people develop and succeed in all aspects of their lives.

Supportive Parents & Friends

We actively encourage your involvement and seek to support your guiding role in your child’s life. As a school, we have a desire to work with parents to ensure your child receives the best possible education and achieves their personal best.

Motivated Students

We encourage children to work hard and, in return, they are recognised and rewarded throughout their time with us. Similarly, we are keen to have well behaved students who will work well together, supporting each other and enjoying school in a safe and positive environment.

Expanding Horizons

The school is committed to the all-round development of your child’s talents and interests. The enrichment programme is varied and exciting, challenging and stretching; allowing children the chance to gain new experiences or deepen existing skills outside of the classroom.

Developing Academically

Each student at Buxton Community School is challenged to achieve their personal best in all areas of their lives. Academically, we support all students and set challenging targets. Regular monitoring and feedback helps each child to achieve their very best.

Developing Physically

At Buxton Community School we provide a wide range of opportunities to help young people establish habits that will set them up for a healthy lifestyle during and beyond their time with us.
