Head - Trafalgar School

Headteacher's Message

I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of Trafalgar School.

My ambition is to ensure that Trafalgar School provides an exceptional learning experience for our students, providing them with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful here and in the wider world. We pride ourselves on our calm, friendly and nurturing learning environment and the positive relationships that are fostered between students, staff and parents.

As a UNICEF Rights Respecting School, we work hard to ensure that our students experience is founded on our five core values which were identified and defined by students and linked to the articles of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) of respect, community, resilience, aspiration and inclusion.

Trafalgar School is a very special community where relationships between adults and children are at the core of everything we do. We are continually striving for excellence in all aspects of what we do as we fulfil our motto;

‘Learning today, leading tomorrow’

Claire Copeland
Executive Headteacher, Trafalgar School

The personal development of pupils is exceptional. Leaders have constructed a programme of enrichment and opportunity to provide every pupil with valuable life experiences and skills.


Pupils thrive and feel safe in this highly inclusive school. Staff ensure that pupils receive the precise help they need. Relationships are highly positive because staff take time to understand and remove barriers to pupils’ learning


Leaders have established a strong culture of safeguarding. They ensure that every member of staff knows how to identify if a pupil may be at risk of harm. They take quick and effective action to seek help when needed.


A well-constructed careers programme ensures that pupils get the tailored support they need to make ambitious decisions about their future.
