In joining the senior department, you will make new friends to last a life time.
For the future in which you will live, you will need curiosity, sound knowledge, good learning skills, the ability to deal with people and a positive attitude to change.
Within a secure, caring and stimulating environment, we offer a varied and challenging curriculum and excellent specialist teaching which will bring out the best in you- intellectually, emotionally, creatively and physically.
We recognise and teach you to recognise that you are an individual who learns in different ways and at a different pace from others; we encourage you to see that getting things wrong is something to learn from so that you develop the confidence to experiment – a huge factor in success.
We want you to enjoy increasing satisfaction as you explore your talents so we make your class work and assignments increasingly demanding. You will choose your favourite options as you get older but we make sure you keep all your options open.
You can also develop your interests by participating in a vast array of extra-curricular activities, some individual but most communal.
Our excellent pastoral care is built on close knowledge of you as a person. In our school, individuals are important. You have a form teacher who is concerned for you and who will support, guide and mentor you.
We pride ourselves on our relaxed but purposeful discipline which helps you to develop the skills and confidence which will prepare you for GCSEs and then towards the sixth form and independence.
