We very much adopt a ‘can do’ philosophy and instil this attitude in all our pupils. All staff in our school have a passion and conviction that our pupils are able to achieve what their potential suggests, and we endeavour to do all in our power, and beyond, to ensure this happens. We are always optimistic about our pupils’ continual success, progress and achievement.
We encourage all pupils to have high aspirations and accept no restriction on what is possible. We formulate highly individualised timetables at Key Stage 4 which are designed to help them develop and achieve within their chosen academic and vocational pathways, and also to oﬀer the best opportunities to succeed in further education and/or employment in the future.
The Bridge Campus and the Beacon Campus both offer outstanding teaching, therapeutic support and vocational pathways which positions Cumberland as a school that is striving to go beyond outstanding.
