Welcome from the Principal

Dr Sally Coulton

Ellis Guilford is a successful school with a rich history. There has been a school on the site in Bar Lane since the 1920s and many generations of the local community have attended here.

Today, Ellis Guilford is a thriving and dynamic 11-16 school which has a diverse range of students. Our students are encouraged to aim high and set challenging personal and academic goals; our staff provide an inspiring curriculum which promotes achievement and fosters curiosity, creativity and ambition; our parents support their child’s aspirations by committing to the school ethos and providing a home environment conducive to independent study; the wider community support the school through positive engagement with our students and staff.

Our role is to prepare the students of Ellis Guilford to be successful citizens able to make informed choices and to positively contribute to their communities, both local and global. We want our students to be receptive to new ideas and responsive to an ever changing world; enabling them to embrace a future of possibilities.
