Visions and value
The school promotes British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. It hopes to help students become knowledgeable and confident students, to differentiate between right and wrong and to teach them to contribute to the community.
The curriculum emphasises the importance of the core subjects of maths, science, English and P.E. It also offers computing, design technology, languages, art, music, drama, geography and history. The school also offers a range of extra-curricular activities that help provide every student with a broad and balanced curriculum.
“Literacy and mathematical skills are taught well across a range of subjects. This is due to the fact that all subjects see it as their responsibility to develop these skills. Pupils enjoy reading and choose books which present a good degree of challenge. The most able pupils make good use of their phonics skills to pronounce unknown words.”
