In its sixth year as a Performing Arts College, the school has a lively atmosphere and rich extended learning opportunities. Our Arts Centre serves both our school and the wider community. As a recognised High Performing Specialist School, the bid to take on Maths & Computing as a second specialism was successful. This will further increase the focus on utilising ICT in all subjects, especially within maths teaching. Additionally, we have strong links with Olympic ideals especially within sporting activities and striving for personal best performances.This is a comprehensive school in that it offers diverse educational pathway choices and a broad range of extended learning opportunities. Our students have many interests, gifts and talents. We are proud, for example, of the success of students with Statements of Special Educational Need or who are on our SEN list; also those students who attain excellent qualifications. A high proportion of students at the school go on to further and higher education, including to Oxford and Cambridge.
