The school’s aim is to provide a broad range of educational opportunities for all students regardless of their ability or background, to develop their potential to the full and to enable
them to become confident, caring adults with the competencies necessary for success in adult life and life-long learning.
The school has an ethos which is shared by staff and students alike and which is founded on respect:
for each other
for hard work
for our community and our environment
Our 5 Core Values:
Be Honest and Respectful
Maintain a Safe Environment
Do your Best
Have High Expectations
Be Positive and Enjoy Learning
Close partnership with parents and mutual respect in this partnership underpins all we do.
The school leaders have demonstrated their strong capacity to bring about sustained improvement through effective self-evaluation processes and this has been acknowledged by parents, carers and students. One parent referred to the school as a ‘shining light amongst local schools’.
Through engaging with businesses and further education college partners, the school is developing personalised pathways for vocational courses and apprenticeships, which are greatly valued by students.
Students overwhelmingly say that they feel safe in school and that any bullying, name-calling or teasing is immediately dealt with.
