Headteacher's Welcome

IRUM Head Of School am delighted to welcome you to the Glebelands School website and thank you for your interest. Glebelands is a school with many strengths and yet we are constantly looking for ways to improve further. The high quality of teaching and learning is central to the success of the school and underpins the excellent progress students make and the standards they achieve.

The teachers at Glebelands believe they can, and do, make a difference to the lives of students they teach so that the young people who pass through this school leave as happy, confident individuals who have developed the skills to lead fulfilling lives and make a positive contribution to society. Relationships between all members of our school community are based on respect - respect for ourselves, respect for others, respect for the environment and respect for learning. 

The school is split into year groups, with each year supported by six tutors and a Head of Achievement who stays with students throughout their time at Glebelands. In this way, our staff get to know our students well and support their progress academically, socially and emotionally, helping them to become self-reflecting and motivated learners. 

Our curriculum is based around and follows national guidelines. However, Glebelands is a Specialist Science College and this theme has permeated all subject areas in the school. Enhancement and extra-curricular activities ensure all our learners have opportunities to get involved in the wider aspects of school life and develop their interpersonal and leadership skills. 

By combining high expectations of work with the state-of-the-art equipment throughout our modern facilities, we are able to provide our learners with an outstanding ‘learning platform’ from which they can develop their own interests and receive the education they deserve. Hopefully this has given you some insight into Glebelands School. Please read on for further information or contact us if you would like to see the school in action – all visitors are welcome! 

At Glebelands we consistently strive to achieve our personal best; 

  • in learning 
  • in enrichment activities 
  • as part of a community
