A very warm welcome to Parmiter's!
I am delighted to introduce you to our unique and exceptional school which I am so proud to lead.
Our ethos is epitomised by the school motto - "Nemo sibi nascitur" (No one is born unto himself/herself alone). As members of the Parmiter's family we are committed to serving each other and our wider community in the way Thomas Parmiter, our founder, intended. Therefore our primary aim is for each Parmiterian to be self-assured and caring, an active and well-rounded citizen with integrity, who respects others and contributes to society.
Parmiter's is a happy and successful school with a reputation for academic and all-round excellence. Within a disciplined and supportive environment students are known and valued as individuals, helped to achieve their full potential and make the most of their talents.
The breadth of our curriculum and the quality of teaching ensure that students consistently reach the highest possible standards in their public examinations. We encourage them to involve themselves in extra-curricular activities, notably music, sport, drama, dance, Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme, House events, community service and fundraising for charitable causes, as well as the wide range of trips and visits on offer.
The school has a long and fascinating history. We cherish our past and traditions but are forward-looking, fully embracing the opportunities and challenges of the twenty-first century.
The success of our students is built upon the strong partnership between school, parents, Governors, Trustees, Old Parmiterians and the local community. As an academy, in addition to government funding, we are fortunate to receive financial support from the Parmiter's Foundation which owns the school and its site and continues to invest substantially in its development. Consequently the school is extremely well accommodated, resourced and maintained.
Thank you for reading this introduction. I hope that you are inspired by what you see and read on our website and that we have given you a flavour of what it is like to be a member of the Parmiter's family.
We would love you to experience the school at first hand. You are most welcome to visit us on Open Day or when the school is in session. We look forward to meeting you and showing you round.
