Thank you for taking an interest in our school; I hope that our website provides a flavour of the work that we do.
We are a caring, friendly and inclusive school with a fast developing reputation for academic excellence. Our success is founded on a wonderful staff team, a clear focus on learning and a desire to develop high aspirations in our students. We are lucky to work in modern accommodation on an attractive site that provides a superb environment for learning.
Our students are treated as individuals, supported by a strong pastoral system and given access to a wide range of extra-curricular activities. We want our students to leave school with excellent qualifications, high standards of literacy and ambitious plans for the future; above all we want them to have enjoyed school, grown in confidence and to have developed a love of learning.
We aim to match the achievements of the best schools in the country and we are determined to do so without losing the friendly, supportive and inclusive ethos that makes this school so special.
The exam results our students receive demonstrate the impact of our work. Our results are well above national and local averages on all key indicators, with 69% of our students in summer 2013 achieving at least 5 A* to C grades including English and Maths.
We are always delighted to welcome visitors, please contact us if you would like to arrange a visit or would like further information about any aspect of our work.
Year 10 – Raising Aspirations, Raising Achievement
On Monday 28th April 2014, over 160 parents and Year 10 pupils packed into the hall for the first Year 10 Parent Information Evening.
All of the speakers shared a view that our year 10 students are entering a fast changing and competitive world of further and higher education and employment. The sessions explained the changes and challenges our students face and presented practical actions and sources of information to help them be best placed to succeed.
