From the News

Welcome to our school

I am very proud to be the Headteacher here at Paulet High School. We are a safe and ordered community as noted by Ofsted: ‘the safety and well-being of students is given a very high priority in school policies and actions’. Students benefit from the highest possible standard of teaching, some of it inspirational (Ofsted 2014), and the high standards we achieve in behaviour and uniform show that our students are proud to call Paulet their school!

Our new Sixth Form College is going from strength to strength with many of our Year 11 students opting to stay on and many joining us from across South Derbyshire to form a vibrant group of hard working and committed students.

If you would like to find out more about our school please feel free to visit us at any time during the working day. You will see for yourself what the school has to offer and how happy and hardworking our students are.

Ian McArthur - Headteacher


‘A strong ethos prevails and students behave well, show positive attitudes to learning and readily take on responsibilities.’
‘The safety and well-being of students is given a very high priority in school policies and actions.’
‘Bullying of any kind is not tolerated and, according to the students, is very rare.’

Personal development.

Here at Paulet, we consider it to be of paramount importance to help students to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to cope with challenges of modern life.

Our overall aim is to help our students stay safe and healthy, raise self-esteem, resilience, make good choices in life and empathise with others.

We pride ourselves on our ability and commitment to inject all subject lessons with discussions on social and personal issues such as stereotyping, personal identity, body image, healthy relationships, CSE, staying safe online and bullying to name but a few.

Alongside our commitment within lessons we also have an extended form time once a week which is dedicated to covering these topics within tutor groups; this allows us to cover more sensitive topics in greater detail.

In addition we also have a range of ‘drop down’ days where we invite guest speakers to spend time with our students, discussing the ‘bigger issues’ such as substance misuse, smoking, alcohol and sex and relationships.

See CEAIG statement/policy for the work related aspects of our personal development programme.
