We are a diverse and vibrant academy, having every language on the DfE census represented in the Academy and we are proud to be a true comprehensive school and we maintain this comprehensive intake right through into our 6th form.

We place the curriculum – what we teach – at the heart of the academy and it informs all decisions we make.
