History and Ethos

Established in 1968, Broadwater School is a co-educational comprehensive state school for students aged 11 – 16. On the smaller side, our current student population is approximately 570. The size of the school helps to generate its distinctive ethos and atmosphere, where the individual is known and catered for.  Students are able to develop their characters and gifts, not only through their studies, but also through extensive opportunities in sport, drama, music and the arts.  High expectations of our students, our staff and our relationships ensure that we are all able to achieve personal, social and academic success.

The school received an Ofsted inspection in October 2019 under the new framework and achieved a ‘GOOD’ overall judgment with OUTSTANDING in Personal Development (click HERE to see the report).  The report details the excellent work of the school as we move towards becoming an outstanding school.
