Message from the principal

Dear Parent/Carer

A very warm welcome to Coastal High School. I am very proud to serve as the principal of Coastal High School and to be leading an ambitious school with huge potential. These are exciting times for the school and for the community. I am delighted to be taking the school into the next chapter in its history.

I am determined to secure an outstanding future for the school and my aims are to build on the current strengths, develop a greater focus on enhancing the quality of teaching and learning, and take the school forward on a journey to outstanding in all areas. I am committed to working with the staff, students and the local community to transform learning, aspirations and opportunities for our students and in the community in which they live.

My aim is to ensure that our students have access to the best possible opportunities and experiences during their education, so that they can reach their full potential and are better prepared for the future. Our work is focused on developing and celebrating students as individuals and not just as learners. We believe that every child, regardless of ability, deserves a first class education. Everyone has hidden potential to be uncovered and nurtured and I strongly believe that together as a learning community we can unlock this potential.

At Coastal High School, our students are at the heart of every decision. Everything we do is about ensuring their experiences, help them to develop in a caring, supportive environment with a strong pastoral structure at the centre of the school. We have high expectations and high aspirations for every one of our students and our vision is that our students aspire to be the best they can be.

Finally, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website.

Mr CJ Martin

School Principal
