A good school with outstanding leadership (Ofsted 2013)

Our vision is based upon the school motto of ´Learning First´...

We work together to raise the achievement of all students, thereby improving their life chances. By embedding ambition in our students we enable our young people to lead balanced lives as adults, capable of contributing to their community.

We are large enough to provide a broad and balanced education, but small enough to give individual attention and care to all our students with an emphasis on personalised learning. 

To find out more about our school including our innovative curriculum and superb facilities, please browse the website or contact the school for a prospectus. Parents may also request a tour during the school day to see first-hand what we are able to offer their child.


Teaching in the Sixth Form is outstanding (Ofsted 2013)

It´s not too late to join the Sixth Form!
