We are enjoying a trajectory of continued success and look forward to welcoming a successful applicant who can join us on our journey. We became a standalone academy in 2011, and we are incredibly proud of the progress we have made as a school, having laid strong foundations for further improvement going forward.

Our school motto, ‘Prepare for the road ahead’, represents our belief in preparing our staff and students for their future. We exemplify our motto not only in terms of academic achievement, but also in terms of the training, enrichment and experiences which make us all model citizens.

These are designed to give teachers one-to-one coaching to develop specific aspects of their classroom practice. NQTs and RQTs are supported through their early years of teaching as they embed excellent classroom routines; developing and experienced teachers are prepared for positions of leadership and responsibility; and senior staff are trained to reflect on and evaluate their practice whilst simultaneously developing others. We can match training and development to everyone’s needs and wishes.
