There is a passionate commitment by staff to inspire through excellent teaching. The strength of relationships between staff, students and parents has been vital in providing support and challenge, promoting achievement. 

We have a tradition of academic success founded on students’ ambition, belief in themselves and a school ethos that seeks to praise and reward all achievement.
