Headteacher's Welcome

Our school’s reputation has evolved for over one hundred years. It is based upon  sustained high levels of achievement and excellence within and outside the classroom.
We are a dynamic school, responding to the demands of the modern world.

As a Specialist Science College since 2004, and a Specialist Languages College since 2009, we are continuing to enhance the curriculum and the quality of teaching and learning. We have extensive ICT facilities across the curriculum and have created links with local secondary and primary schools.

We aim to stimulate and challenge the minds of our students in order for them to attain the highest academic achievement. Our interest is not confined to academic results. We ensure that our students acquire life-long skills, which prepare them for the challenges of the future. We also encourage each student to develop their personal talents through a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities.

Our school is a happy and caring community which believes in traditional values. We aim to make our students feel a sense of belonging and to develop personal qualities of courtesy, integrity, hard work and concern for others. Each will feel equally supported to achieve their best and develop their talents, however diverse.
