We have a track record of delivering the very highest standards of education and care. We provide an accepting, positive and welcoming learning environment for all of our young people and offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which allows pupils to follow both academic and vocational pathways.
Pupils are able to make choices for their individual pathway and all courses are accredited to GCSE level, which mirrors a mainstream offering. However, where our approach differs is in the delivery of these courses, through an individualised approach for each pupil, taking advantage of personalised and alternative curriculums.
We also offer off-site provisions that allow our pupils to access additional course options, as well as attend a mainstream setting. All pupils in Year 10 and 11 also have at least two weeks work experience in different fields of industry to help them gain work skills and experience for their future careers.
Our commitment to providing our pupils with an unparalleled learning environment has resulted in the development of a purpose built sports hall and state-of-the-art science laboratory, adding to the existing high quality and well-resourced classrooms and educational suites.
We would be delighted to welcome you to the school to see for yourself the ongoing progression of our facilities, staff team and most importantly our young people.
