  • Relationships between pupils and staff are positive and contribute substantially to the calm and productive learning environment

We have a state-of -the-art building, and in September 2018, a new wing was opened with purpose built science laboratories to accommodate our rapidly expanding sixth form. We aim to give every student the opportunity to learn in an exciting and inspiring environment.
