What the school offers its staff

The school is a mixed community school with over 1,000 students on role. Approximately 30% of our students come from ethnic minority backgrounds and we have a resource provision for physically impaired students which really adds to the positive and harmonious atmosphere around school. Our superb, modern school building further enhances the atmosphere and supports students’ learning. ‘This is a school where staff and pupils celebrate diversity and promote values of tolerance, mutual respect and care for others’ (Ofsted).

The school has repeatedly been judged good by Ofsted and we have a strong record of academic achievement, whilst ensuring that all students are well supported. Students make good progress here because, ‘the working atmosphere in classrooms is positive’ and ‘pupils take pride in their work’ (Ofsted).

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.
