What is it like to attend this school?

Pupils are very well cared for. Leaders have high ambitions for pupils and make sure that their individual needs are met. There is a determination that no pupil, whatever difficulty they face, is left behind. This culture continues into the sixth form. Here, students can choose from a variety of options designed to meet their future goals. Staff take care to ensure that the sixth form can be a destination for everyone.

Staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. As a result, there is a calm and focused environment throughout the school. Pupils are respectful of each other and of the adults that work with them. Pupils understand and appreciate the high standards that staff require of them.

Pupils are happy in school. They benefit from a programme of clubs and wider opportunities. Staff ensure that as many pupils as possible can take advantage of these activities. Leaders support the mental health of pupils effectively. Bullying at the school is rare but when it occurs it is dealt with quickly by staff. Pupils take advantage of a wide range of opportunities to talk about any problems they are facing. They know where to seek support and this helps to keep them safe.
