Our students are at the centre of everything we do and every decision is based on what will give the best outcomes for them. The school strategic planning revolves around the 10 Signposts to Success and these will tell you about our strategic vision for how we will make the school outstanding. The school is a busy and exciting place to be with many different activities happening every day.
The school has undergone many changes during recent years and it is now a friendly, thriving and stimulating place to work and study. We have fantastic students, supportive parents, some excellent primary schools and staff who are committed to improving the school and the lives of young people. The school prides itself on being a student-centred learning community placing the welfare of every student at the heart of what we do. We feel it is very important that we are at the centre of the local community.
The school began in the 1950s as a secondary modern but expanded rapidly during the 1970s and 1980s so the school is based across a large campus with different blocks with specialist facilities for different subject areas. The school is land-rich and we have extensive grounds with several sports fields.
We have an open-door policy and welcome anyone to make an appointment to visit.
