There is much joy in this school. Pupils value their teachers, and the rich and diverse community in which they learn

Teachers take account of individual pupils’ needs in their good lesson planning. They make sure that pupils, even those who arrive at unusual points in the school year, are quickly assimilated and make good progress

Teaching is strong in the sixth form. Teachers are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. They show great commitment. Students are fulsome in their praise of the impact their teachers have had on their future education

Lessons are characterised by strong and positive relationships between pupils and teachers. Teachers know pupils well. Often teachers target the learning that individual pupils need because they know them so well

Coronavirus Update

We are looking forward to opening to children in the primary, year 7 and 11 and Post 16 on Tuesday 8th September and all pupils on Wednesday 9th September.  We are expecting all pupils go be back at school and have prepared school to welcome the pupils back and start learning as a school community again.

We have studied the guidance closely and made the necessary arrangements to prepare the school to be safe and welcoming for staff and pupils alike.  There are understandably some changes we have made and we will talk the pupils through these changes. We have also included the risk assessment and the plans we have made on the school website. You can access these using the link below.

If you are bringing you child to school be at school 5 minutes before and please leave the site quickly after you have dropped your child off and said goodbye.  At the end of the school day please wait away from the school or in in the designated areas to meet you child.

You have all done a great job as parents and carers in educating your children and keeping them engaged as active learners. You should all be very proud.  We look forward to the time we can greet all of the children on their return to school and building on what you have done.

Our future lies in front of us and we will take it together step by step, for the greater good of all of the staff and children. We all have  a job to do and we will do it together caring for everyone on the journey so we can all grow and thrive.

Today is step 1!
