A very warm welcome to our website. We hope that reading these pages will help you to gain an insight into the essence and heart of our school.
We place great importance on our core purpose of teaching and learning. We strive to operate a 'CAN DO' culture where people are able to pursue ideas and take risks - they are developed and supported. This ethos was recognised in our Ofsted inspection in September 2011:
"Students espouse this aspirational and 'can do, will do' culture..... Alongside this formidable aspirational ethos is a culture of mutual respect and value in the fundamental benefits and joys of learning."
We pride ourselves on the good relationships that exist at all levels and which are based on trust, openness, teamwork and respect. There is a 'buzz' and enthusiasm about the place. People are curious and keen to try out new ideas. There is a strong sense of optimism and pride in the school's successes and in our capacity to develop and improve. We have high expectations and a strong sense of achievement.
