The school has earned a reputation over many years for respecting the value, worth and dignity of all its students. It strives to provide a high standard of education in which all pupils can achieve their full potential. In recent years the school has become recognised for academic excellence and pioneering work in teaching and learning. If you choose the school for your sons and daughters, you are guaranteed a first rate education which is founded on the basis of good teaching in a supportive environment where pupils not only learn how to do things but also how to live and work together.

We are a Centre for Excellence in many parts of our curriculum and offer a very wide range of courses both academic and vocational. We have a wide variety of extra-curricular activities based on our outstanding sports facilities, as well as many foreign visits and field trips. We are linked with four other schools on different continents and we have a highly developed charitable programme where students are encouraged to be involved in the local community through charity work, language leadership programmes in primary schools and sport.  The school offers a choice of four languages and has specialist design in engineering facilities, including an electronics and design centre which has worldwide links.

The school has had £15m worth of building work to provide state of the art facilities across the curriculum areas.  We have recently completed a new Foreign Language and Art Centre, Engineering and Design Centre, a new Library, Mathematics suite and an English suite.  A new Humanities and Business School centre are to be completed in 2017. 

The school has a strong commitment to pastoral excellence and we pride ourselves on providing a well disciplined and structured environment for all our students.  The school has a large number of supportive employers both local and national and draws on a large number of professionals to provide support for its careers education programme.  If you would like to visit our school please do not hesitate to contact us.
