Welcome from the Principal

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.

We are an 11-16 school with over 1300 pupils on roll. 

We have three Core Values that we expect our students to demonstrate:

  • Equality – give everyone a chance – to belong and succeed
  • Integrity – do the right thing – with passion, with purpose
  • Ambition – work hard, aim high – now and for the future

We aim to prepare all our pupils to be good citizens of the future. Ellis Guilford has hard working and caring staff who support pupils through engaging lessons, excellent pastoral care and a wide range of enrichment and extra curricular activities.

We very much value positive relationships with families as, together, we can make a real difference to the lives of our young people.

We joined the Creative Education Trust on 1st November 2018. CET have an excellent track record in supporting schools and we hope that this partnership will enable us to drive improvements and secure even better student progress and outcomes.

Mr D Powell
