We have an excellent 6th form partnership arrangement with Lawnswood School (another good local school) and together we offer post-16 provision to rival the best in the city – ‘The quality of provision for post-16 students remains good. Students make consistently good progress over time’ (Ofsted). We are a Trust school in partnership with several of our local partner Primary schools. We have a strong relationship with the Local Authority and are also part of the highly regarded Red Kite Alliance teaching school hub, ‘Partnership working is strong’ (Ofsted).
Our school motto is ‘ambition and achievement for all’. We firmly believe in giving all students the opportunity to achieve their very best regardless of the circumstances in which they find themselves.
