Our A level results and destinations are equally impressive, with the school placed in the top 10% for performance (according to ALPS) and over 95% of all students gaining entrance to their university or apprenticeship of choice.
We are committed to professional development for all staff, regardless of role. We have an innovative staff development programme, which truly empowers staff to take control of their own professional development.
