The Curriculum

Balanced and enriched with the aim of stretching and challenging pupils of all abilities through active differentiation in teaching and learning. Three BTECS and 24 subjects offered at A-level.

Games & the Arts

Achievements outside of the classroom are as important as those within, and all pupils are encouraged to become fully involved in school life. This involvement helps produce confident, healthy and well-round individuals who will contribute to society beyond school.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is at the heart of the school community and the ‘house’ evokes a sense of pride and belonging. Blake House for juniors in their first year offers a nurturing environment and a valuable stepping-stone to the senior houses (four boys’, three girls’ and two co-educational houses). Pupils in their final year are encouraged to live more independently in Nelson House, preparing them for life beyond school.

University Places

97 per cent gain places to their first choice university.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We encourage pupils to show commitment, integrity and belief in themselves, whatever path they choose. Everyone has the potential to achieve exceptional things but we are all different. We focus on the individual looking for their strengths and nurturing their motivations. Education should be the foundation for lifelong happiness and success.
