The school is very ambitious for all our students - your children.  We have a simple, but powerful school aim - "Achievement for All".

We set very high expectations for all our young people both academically; in terms of progress and in regard to their behaviour.  We aim for all our students to develop a desire to invest in their own learning and fully prepare to take on the challenges of a rapidly changing 21st Century global society.

Students in return can expect our commitment to the highest possible quality of teaching, care and support.
