We demand the highest standards from students and staff, deliver high quality teaching and ensure all students exceed their potential.
We make a promise to give students every support in reaching their true potential. We support and guide students in their pathways to further education or workplace opportunities.
We encourage all our learners to develop their aspirations through a culture of no excuses. We seek to forge close links with further and tertiary institutions, including Russell Group universities, as well as leading employers local, national and international, in order to ensure the future success of all our students. Our preparation for a university education or employment includes teaching character strengths to ensure that our students are equipped with life skills as well as academic and critical thinking skills to take into their adult lives. This ethos pervades the curriculum through a combination of discrete academic subjects, qualifications and our extra-curricular programme.
Our curriculum addresses learners’ academic and personal character development. Alongside the core curriculum, all learners participate in a programme of personal development and enrichment including sport, cultural, creative, enterprise, charitable and intervention activities.
