Welcome...

 

Take a look inside a new kind of school...

 

A school that offers your child better opportunities than ever before, in an exciting new development purpose-built to encourage attainment and success. Writing as a parent and Headteacher myself, I can assure you that our premises and resources are now state of the art; they have been specially planned to inspire a culture of learning and to promote ambition in young people aged 11 to 16.

 

 

We have a safe and happy environment in which we encourage our learners to have self-belief, to understand they have the potential to succeed, to take charge of their own development and take pride in their achievements in the academic and vocational fields. More than ever before, we are in a position to offer young people the life-enhancing opportunities that will prepare them for their future, whatever their ambitions are. We can prepare your child for a career with top quality vocational and academic training backed by the kind of friendly, professional teaching and mentoring that ensures they are also socially competent for a fuller, happier life.

 

With kind regards
