To develop a thriving, exciting learning community that supports our students and staff in achieving their maximum learning potential.
Our vision is to create a thriving, exciting learning community that allows both staff and students to meet their full learning potential. We want our students to become independent, curious learners and to be equipped with the essential skills needed for life outside of the school community. We aim to deliver consistently high quality teaching and learning opportunities across the school to allow our students and staff to meet their full potential. In order to achieve this, we have five school priorities.
1. To consistently deliver good and outstanding lessons in all subjects
2. To consistently provide good quality feedback to all students in all subjects
3. To be consistent in the setting of homework in all subjects
4. To further develop literacy across the school
5. To further develop the use of TAs in the classroom in order to meet the needs of all students.
