You’ll also lead by example, supporting learners to achieve to the best of their ability and you’ll enjoy that great feeling when your learners achieve grades beyond their dreams.

Our curriculum at Key Stage 3 is ambitious and exciting and has a thematic approach, including topics such as Crime and Punishment, Anne Frank and animals and religion.
