St Sampson’s High School
Welcome to St Sampson’s High School where children join at 11 years old and progress through to the age of 16. St Sampson’s offers families a warm, welcoming setting where children are supported, and where their talents are nurtured through the exploration of the Bailiwick Big Picture curriculum which is intended to develop all children as: successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.

The school educates over 700 students every year with a wide spectrum of aspirations, interests and needs. The school offers high quality pastoral support, academic challenge and a wider curriculum that builds resilience and brings out the joy and confidence in all of our young people.

Our partner primary schools include Haute Capelles primary school; La Mare de Carteret primary school; Vale primary school and St Mary and St Michael Catholic primary school. We enjoy transition days in the summer term welcoming year 6 students and work with our primary partners to ensure transition is smooth and well supported.

St Sampson’s School provides excellent facilities for our young people and becomes a central community hub for a range of organisations out of hours.

We hope you enjoy the content of our site and look forward to welcoming you to our school.
