As an IB World School, we are one of a select group of state schools offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The IB is known around the world for its academic rigour and for developing independent, critical thinkers. Students study a broader range of subjects than the traditional A Level course, ensuring they are well prepared for university and beyond; recent evidence from HESA (the Higher Education Statistics Agency) shows that IB students do significantly better at university than those with other equivalent qualifications, including A Levels.
We are also one of the first schools in the world to offer the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme. Reflecting the Academy’s specialism in International Business and Enterprise, students study a vocational qualification in Business, Creative Media and ICT, while also completing IB Certificates (each broadly equivalent to an A Level). It is a fantastic choice for students who prefer a balanced mixture of academic and vocational study.
The purpose-built hall is available for a wide range of activities including: badminton, basketball, volleyball, football, cricket and netball. The facility is also used to run sports clubs for both adults and children. The hall comprises of: 4 badminton courts, i volleyball court, 3.5 indoor cricket lanes, 1 full-sized netball & basketball court and one 5-a-side football court.
The dance studio is used for fitness and martial arts classes, yoga and many more activities. The area is equipped with a mirrored wall, ballet barre and professional sound system.
The pitches are floodlit all weather 3rd generation Astroturf. The 8-a-side pitches can be used as a full size pitch or can be split into three smaller pitches, allowing you to have smaller games. You can hire them out for club training, football courses, charity games or take part in midweek leagues run by either Pitch Invasion or Top Corner.
