The Academy will grow to six hundred students aged 11-16 when fully operational and will provide a stimulating education and personalised curriculum within a supportive environment.  All of our students will be encouraged to stretch themselves to achieve their potential.   

Our Science department consists of highly experienced teachers who have been judged outstanding by Ofsted, including a former Advanced Skills Teacher.
