School Week (A/B) Calendar


I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I hope it provides information that demonstrates how the school works with its students, staff, governors and community as well as providing details of the statutory information you may require. Our school is a popular and successful school committed to caring for our pupils as well as educating them. We place huge emphasis on values such as self-discipline, good behaviour, uniform, teamwork and co-operation. Our aim is to ensure students become the best that they can be.
The school has a high academic record and provides enrichment opportunities in sport, music, drama and many other activities.
I am very privileged to lead a dedicated, talented and experienced staff team who strive to ensure that our students fulfil their potential. We take children from year 7 and develop them into impressive young adults – academically accomplished, but also well prepared for life after school.
I hope you find the website informative, but please contact us should you require further information.
