We are an academy on a rapid improvement journey.  We have very high expectations of uniform and behaviour and crucially, we expect our students to work as hard as our staff do. We know that our staff team are our greatest resource. Therefore, we invest heavily in them and we know that this has helped us to develop our stable, supportive and high performing team.
