Values and vision
The school prides itself on putting the needs of individual students at the centre of everything it does. It aims to foster traditional values, contemporary aspirations and creative curiosity in pupils.
Staff aim to ensure all pupils meet their potential by creating a safe yet vibrant learning environment, which sees first-class teaching and learning every single day.
“Teaching has improved as a result of a series of well-designed strategies to develop consistency and support weaker performance. Parents, carers and students express positive views about teaching and progress. The very best teaching is innovative, informed by good subject knowledge and challenging for all groups of students.”
“Staff have created a positive ethos for learning. As a result, students form good relationships, behave well and have good attitudes to learning. Students feel safe.”
