A word from Jane Cockerill, Head of Years 7-11

Our Years 7-11 site is dedicated to day students and covers a broad curriculum from Key Stage 3 through to GCSE. Kindness, inclusivity, and the personal success of every student are at the heart of everything we do. We work in partnership with our parent community to make this a reality, offering a strong network of support.

Through small class sizes, tailored teaching, and a wide range of opportunities, we help to realise the potential of every individual. As well as having a shared enthusiasm for learning, our vibrant and welcoming site abounds with creative energy and laughter. Our school is rich in possibility and opportunity. Students are encouraged to think deeply about topics in the curriculum, and give new passions and hobbies a try from our extensive co-curricular provision.

An education here helps students develop into active, empathetic, and confident individuals ready for the next steps in education. We have been described as ‘a school of energy, laughter and achievement’ and that’s true; our community feels like an extended family where everyone is encouraged to challenge themselves and live life to the full.
