About the School

Welcome from the Headteacher, Mr Stephen Box

Thank you for your interest in our school. We trust that the information on our website will be of use to those who are already part of our community as well as those who are exploring to find out something about us.

We hope you will get a feel for the fact that we have two parallel ambitions.  We have a climate of academic excellence - evidenced by the impressive improvements in results that we have seen in recent years. We also do an excellent job of helping our students develop as well-rounded, emotionally intelligent, confident young people who are well prepared for success in adult life. Ofsted visited the school in 2016 and rated it as 'Outstanding' in all areas.

Our guiding principles are summed up in the phrase “Working Together to Inspire, Challenge and Achieve”.  All members of our community support and encourage each other in a very special way. As a staff we are constantly inspired by the young people we have the privilege to work with. The challenges they set themselves and the levels of achievement they demonstrate in a vast range of activities are impressive!
