What the school says...

As a school which is part of the Learning Schools Trust (LST) partnership of Academies, we believe that young people are capable of amazing things and it is our job to see that they are given the right opportunities, facilities and support to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Students are at the centre of everything we do.
We have developed a very exciting and new approach to learning which is designed to meet the varied and different needs of each individual student within the Academy.
We believe that all students are different and that they learn in different ways and at different rates.
The core curriculum of English, Maths, Science, ICT and languages will be delivered using a specially developed STEPS Curriculum where students will be encouraged to work at their own pace, with their teachers having set goals for them.
They will also benefit from a thematic, problem-solving approach in other curriculum areas where they will develop the personal learning and thinking skills that will enable them to become successful learners at school but also throughout their lives.
We also offer a full range of ex-curricular provision including sport, the arts and activities such as The Duke of Edinburgh Award.
