We strive to ensure that all students realise their full potential and, as a caring school, we value each student as an individual. We aim to enable all students to make the most of their educational experiences within a supportive environment.

The pastoral team keeps in regular contact with parents and in most cases is the first point of contact for parents. Additional support is provided by a range of agencies and dedicated support staff in school. Systematic tracking of student progress allows us to identify and support any student in danger of underachieving.

Great emphasis is placed upon the personal and social development of students by preparing them to take a positive role in society. We have a varied programme led by our Personal, Social and Health Education Coordinator.

The school council and year councils enable all students to have a voice about their educational experiences, involve students in the school decision-making process and provide staff and governors with student feedback. We value all our students for who they are and for their contribution to the developing progress of our school.

Positive behaviour is encouraged through our reward system, which is designed to reinforce good work and appropriate behaviour in class and promote student involvement in the community of the School. The highlight of this is our Celebration of Success Evening in December each academic year.
