We encourage all our students to maximise their potential and be the best they can possibly be.

All students are individuals, with different strengths. In order to provide a personalised education for every individual:

• Students are assessed as early as possible and then placed into ability sets.

Children are regularly assessed and repositioned within groups according to their progress.

• Termly reports are provided for every student.

• Parent evenings are held for all year groups at the start and during each academic year to report on progress and targets.

• Our “parent gateway” means you can look up your child’s attendance, achievements, behaviour and attainment via a secure web portal.

• Our staff deliver active, challenging and innovative lessons for each group using high quality equipment and resources.

We actively involve parents in many aspects of school life and work in partnership to deliver the best possible education for our students.
