Excellent Teaching and Learning

We strive to develop teaching and learning to as high a standard as possible. We have made great progress improving the outcomes for our students and our results are a testament to this.


The Physical Education department is very keen on developing dynamic independent learners. We offer an incredibly diverse enrichment package in PE, which delivers support and opportunities for all students.



We are very fortunate to have such an amazing learning environment and we regularly consult our students on how we could improve equipment or our buildings to better enhance their learning.
