What the parents say...

My child has just finished Year 7, has been involved in drama productions, sport, debates and much much more. Also made great academic progress. Recognised by OFSTED as outstanding. Data on here is a bit outdated as has over 400 pupils, soon to be 600 as it grows. Could not be happier!

Commented on 19th Jul 2015

This school has only been open since Sept 2013, yet is already hugely oversubscribed. My daughter has been in Year 7 for 10 months and has thrived. She has been in a school production, plays in the netball B team, has played rounders B team and loads of cricket. Academically, has made loads of progress and I could not have got more if I had paid for a private school. Small classes. loads of after school clubs, sport, drama... If all free schools were like this there would be no debate!

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
