Message from the Headteacher

"As he did so, he held out his other hand in a gesture of friendship and reconciliation, a smile lighting his worn face. 'In an hour, maybe, or two,' he said, 'we will be trying our best again each other to kill. God only knows why we do it, and I think he has maybe forgotten why. Goodbye Welshman. We have shown them, haven't we? We have shown them that any problem can be solved between people if only they can trust each other. That is all it needs, no?"
― Michael Morpurgo, War Horse

Welcome to Glenburn! We are looking forward to a summer of planned commemorations of the First World War Centenary. This will help us to learn from the values of commitment, courage and loyalty that are shown in wartime and further deepen Glenburn's own core values of respect, commitment and exceptional relationships.   

We always have much to learn from everyone who walks through our doors - we are not perfect - but we are on a long-term, sustainable journey of improvement. We value every young person for who they are and we always strive to educate them in the widest sense so that they can aspire and succeed in whatever direction life takes them. 

I look forward to welcoming you to our school - there is always something interesting going on - life at Glenburn is never dull!

James Harris
