About Conisborough College

Conisborough College offers a broad and balanced curriculum to around 900 girls and boys aged 11-16.

he past five years have been a period of great change and improvement and we have had two extremely positive Ofsted reports.  The number of students achieving 5 A*-C grades has more than doubled over the last five years and in terms of the progress and achievements our students are making, we are one of the most improved schools in London.  Our whole mission is about making sure we maximise the life choices of our young people.  We are committed to ensuring all our children enjoy coming to school and achieve to their full potential..

We believe that achievement in all areas of school life should be rewarded and celebrated.  We challenge our students to excel in academic, cultural and sporting activities.  We are committed to providing an excellent standard of education and every possible opportunity for our young people to thrive and develop.  Our students have access to state of the art facilities and work in a friendly, disciplined environment that is designed to meet the demands of the 21st century.

This pursuit of excellence is based on a strong home / school partnership and we are constantly looking to find new ways to involve parents and carers in their children's education.

We encourage our students to become responsible and active citizens who are respectful of others.  Students are rewarded for making a positive contribution to the life of the school and the local community.

We have now established our partnership with Colfe's.  Colfe's is one of the leading independent schools in the area and work with us on a range of projects to further raise standards.  Our highest achieving Year 11 students secure scholarships to the sixth form at Colfe's.  A partnership of this kind leads the way in terms of collaborative working between the private and public sectors and this is part of the overall strategy to ensure students at Conisborough College enjoy the very best educational experience.
