Ethos and Vision

We are wholeheartedly committed to ‘Opportunity, Aspiration and Excellence for All’.

We believe that an outstanding school experience, which combines a caring yet challenging approach, is absolutely crucial in providing our students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to achieve their very best throughout life. I fully understand the importance of choosing the right school for your child and hope that our vision articulates this clearly.

An outstanding high school requires a strong working partnership between teachers, students and parents/carers. We are a caring school, in which every individual matters and all students are encouraged to work hard to achieve their potential. On a daily basis, the strong bonds that are created between teachers and students, and between students and their peers, are evident. These create an atmosphere and environment through an extremely well developed aspirational culture, where students really enjoy school, and because of this, make excellent progress. We pride ourselves on our relationships with very supportive parents who know that their children’s care and success is our priority.
