Engage with the world around you

The wider our horizons, the further we can travel. In a hyper-connected world, engaging with the wider world is essential. A diverse school community is a good place to start exploring our knowledge of the world, our relationships with others and our understanding of difference.

Supporting every student

For some children, school life passes without incident. However, most children will experience some bumps in the road as they grow up. Friendship issues, academic anxiety, or concerns with self-esteem are among the challenges of teenage life.  With caring support from staff, friends and parents, they can be overcome. Such is the importance of pastoral support.

Leading the way

As the world changes, so must schools evolve to meet the challenges our children will face in their lifetimes. We seek to provide an education that will sustain children into their adult lives, and launch them towards future success and fulfilment. One such example of this is our Solar Car Project which won the TES award for Science, technology and engineering team of the year.
