We are a successful academy grammar school with high aspirations for all our students and believe strongly that building students’ learning capacity has the power to transform lives.

We have an excellent staff who support the students in all their learning and extra-curricular activities. We are a friendly school and one which provides an encouraging environment in which pupils can pursue a diverse range of activities.

    This is to anyone struggling with their mental health. We know it’s hard. We know it can be isolating. But you can get through it. Ask for help. Speak to a friend. Text us if you need to. It could be the first step in helping you feel better.

    Thank you for the training you delivered today. It is great that we now have so many staff that would now know how to administer an Adrenaline Auto Injector if needed.
