Why Choose Us?

Rated 'good' by Ofsted the school is also set to benefit from a £7 million investment programme. With work starting this summer (2018) and scheduled to run until August 2019, the improvements will help us to meet the growing local requirement for more places in Year 7, taking the school's capacity from 600 to 900, through an additional to forms of entry in every year group.

As part of United Learning, we are motivated by the group's core values of Ambition, Confidence, Creativity, Determination, Enthusiasm and Respect and set our expectations and standards high.

And we are determined to keep improving, learning and developing ourselves, working closely with a range of partners in education and industry in support of this aim.
