Our safeguarding of young people and our pastoral care is excellent. We have high expectations of students’ behaviour and their positive attitudes to learning and school life.
  • We have a dynamic and inspirational curriculum, which aims to appeal to the interests and needs of all our students. We have a track-record of high academic success in public examinations. We place emphasis on a traditionally broad and balanced curriculum and we have high expectations of academic success in core subjects, to develop students’ literacy, numeracy and scientific skills. We run an NT Student Excel Programme for our gifted and talented students. We have an excellent Learning Support department with a highly trained team of Learning Support Assistants to give individual support for students with Special Educational Needs.
