About us

As a Sports College our facilities will be continually improved and, with the addition of a new dance studio and fitness room, students can expect to have the best opportunities to develop their own skills.

Facilities available

Sixth Form students have their own common room with vending machine and kitchen area with tea and coffee making facilities. A study room with computer facilities is also available.

The new science laboratories utilise state of the art equipment while computer facilities and ICT enjoy a high profile within the school. Drama, music and art, are housed in specialist rooms, including practice rooms and studios. Design & Technology workshops include provision for Food, Textiles, Electronics, Resistant Materials and Graphics.

Student Mentoring and Assessment
 
We take pride in the high quality education we provide for our students and in the high quality of care and relationships that exist within the school community. We believe that each individual is equally important; we are committed to offering quality opportunities to all and enabling every individual to flourish during their time with us.
 
On entry to the school, your child will become a member of a tutor group that is made up of students of all abilities. The form tutor has responsibility for the day-to-day welfare and progress of all students in their tutor group, overseen by the Head of Year.
 
Careers Education
 
Lessons in PSHE are provided to help studet6ns make informed decisions about their future career. There are computer assisted packages including FAST TOMATO and KUDOS to support exploration of interests, personal qualities, preferences and abilities.
 
In Year 10 students are able to go on Work Experience that takes place in the summer term. Additional support is available from the Careers section in the Library and from CONNEXIONS advisers who are also available at Parents’ Evenings.
 
Providing for Special Needs
 
We are proud of our capacity to support the development of all students and while stretching gifted and talented students, we also deploy specialist staff from our ENABLE team to support students with particular learning needs.
 
Assessment of individual learning ability is linked directly to planning, production and delivery of relevant learning materials. Our policy values all students equally. All students are educated in mainstream classes alongside their peers. Some students may also be withdrawn for individual or small group work to meet their individual needs.
