The school culture is one in which achievement in all activities is valued and celebrated. Our expectations for personal achievement and behaviour are very high and there is a genuine sense of partnership between all members of the school community, which fosters a purposeful but friendly ethos promoting values of respect, consideration and co-operation.
As a school specialising in the relatively able, we are committed to academic excellence in all areas of the curriculum. The quality of teaching is exceptionally high and the Value Added measures for student progress are amongst the best in England.
Recognition of the school’s work is reflected in a succession of exceptional Ofsted Reports.
