Everyone in school is here for a purpose, to learn each day, and to widen their knowledge, experience and imaginative understanding.

At both Key Stage 3 and 4, the broad learning opportunities within the curriculum enable students to enjoy, achieve and grow in their learning. Students follow a curriculum that is appropriate to their needs, provides challenge and enables them to achieve.
