Here are some examples of what we do now:

  • We are a non-uniform school where students are encouraged to  be themselves and value difference
  • We provide a wide range of options within the curriculum
  • We provide a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities including sports, drama, music, clubs and trips
  • We value positive relationships between students and staff, built upon knowledge of the individual
  • We celebrate success through assemblies, our website and other activities

The school development and improvement plan seeks to extend and enrich our current provision so that our aims become a deeper reality for all students, staff and members of the wider school community. The SDIP themes for 2012-15 are: Achievement for All, Growth Mindset, Literacy and Numeracy, Assessment for Learning, Professional Learning Culture, Independent Learning, Relationships for Learning and Student Leadership.  These themes have been used to plan particular areas of focus in Faculty and Subject Teams, in Year Teams and in the work of the Senior Leadership Team.  Further explanation of these themes can be found here.
