'The quality of teaching and learning is outstanding' Ofsted Oct 2017

We have exceptionally strong relationships between pupils and teachers. A feeling of togetherness, along with warmth and purposefulness is key to our learning. Our children are happy when they are learning and rightly show tremendous pride in their work.

“I enjoy it and teachers challenge us when we need to be challenged.” – Hannah Y8

Our pupils make outstanding progress because our incredibly dedicated staff recognise the individual qualities of every child. We deliver unique and exciting learning experiences that help every one of our children to grow and learn in a way that suits them.

“Teachers give us a lot of support.” – Jordan Y10

“Teachers give excellent feedback about our work that helps us improve.” – Ethan Y11

It’s important to us that our wonderful students enjoy their learning experiences and develop a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives. As well as their academic skills we work hard to develop our pupils' emotional well-being and resilience. We believe in a 'Growth Mindset' that helps break down the fear of failure and we promote the power of yet. "I can't do it" becomes "I can't do it yet".

“They make it fun to learn.” – Abbie Y8

Our staff are highly enthusiastic and passionate about continually developing their own excellent practice. This ensures that we give our pupils the best learning experiences possible and they, therefore, gain the best outcomes possible.

“Teachers invest their personal time to help us get to the next level.” – Forrest Y11
