As such, the Design & Technology faculty is an extremely popular subject area that is studied by students at key stage 4.

We are looking to expand further, particularly in the field of Electronics, Systems & Control.

With a robust pupil premium intervention team, slightly smaller class sizes and our links with the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), pupil performance has been consistently excellent at both key stages for a number of years. In 2019, the last year to have external examinations, 80% attained at least a grade 4 at GCSE level, 61% attained at least a grade 5 and 27% attained at least a grade 7, all significantly above national average.

Staff in both departments play a wider role in the school and community and have been instrumental in the School Fair, Ski Trip, F1 for Schools programme, Enterprise Project, Duke of Edinburgh Award and our Romsey to Kenya project, as well as after school clinics, revision workshops and teaching of our IGCSE Further Maths course.
