“We are a Northern Education Trust Academy. This means we promote the values that all academies in the NET family uphold the welfare of others abd that the education of every child is held to be of equal value. Day-to-day, this means we expect responsible and caring behaviour from everyone.  It means we work hard to support all of our children and young people to learn even better than they thought they could themselves, no matter what their starting point.  It means we aim to help our students make a successful move to the next step in life, be it employment, training or university.”
