At GTS our ethos is to ensure that all pupils are able to make outstanding progress in their learning and personal development in their 5 years with us. We will look at each cohort as they join GTS and evaluate the best learning pathway for all the pupils.
All the staff at GTS want our pupils to: Have their Dreams, Believe in themselves and Achieve.
We have actively developed our curriculum over a number of years. Changes have been driven by our determination to deliver courses according to our pupils’ learning needs, both now and in the future. We do not necessarily follow what appears to be in fashion or run courses to boost our exam statistics. We do what is best for our pupils’ future.
Sport and Applied Learning specialisms have made a significant contribution to the success of the school. Pupils have the opportunity to experience a wide range of sporting activities from traditional team games to exciting and demanding outdoor pursuits such as climbing and surfing. Vocational courses focus on equipping our young people with life skills for the world of work. The Employers Forum meet termly so that what is learnt in the classroom is experienced by the pupils in local businesses through visits and work placements.
At GTS we are not just about exam results. We offer our pupils opportunities and experiences from which they gain the very best qualifications, skills, personal qualities, a passion for learning and a belief in themselves. Pupils visit our partner school in Azezo, Ethiopia and more are planning to embark on an expedition to Morocco; we really do want our pupils to be ready for the wider world.
