The Commonweal School Profile

The Commonweal School is a Performing Arts Academy and offers all students an enjoyable, rewarding and high quality education.

Mission statement: Our mission is to increase knowledge of the power of Art in a broad social context. We aim to raise awareness of social issues, increase empathy with others, promote personal development and facilitate learning to all. We advocate peer education, team building, IT skills, improvements in the environment, social inclusion, cultural diversity, wider participation and empowering our communities.

Our forward looking, friendly and committed staff combine expertise and enthusiasm to provide a meaningful education with opportunities for all students to succeed.

Within the community Commonweal School has an excellent reputation and we work hard to retain this by looking after all those who belong to and work with the school and by maintaining our high expectations of what can be achieved, both in and beyond the classroom.

We are an oversubscribed, genuinely comprehensive school with a distinctive character and have a desire to do things just that little bit differently.

As a Performing Arts Academy we believe that all students should be given the opportunity to increase their self-esteem, to foster a positive self-image and, through creative experiences, to work actively and constructively with others.
