“As Ofsted said about us: “one of our strengths is our students”. We agree. We place strong emphasis on good standards of behaviour and courtesy. We enjoy working with young people and preparing them to take their place as global citizens of the twenty-first century. We don’t chase league table positions or do anything if they aren’t in the interests of our students’ progress and personal development. We also have a stunning staff team here with a strong commitment to high quality teaching and learning, backed by high quality support for students, governors and parents. We are known for our distinctive 3-period day, our no-bells culture, our active approach to healthy lifestyles, and a belief that a good school is about developing the whole person, within and beyond the classroom.”
