Why Choose us?

Our curriculum breadth is focused on ensuring every pupil is exposed to the widest range of subjects possible to equip them to leave school ready to achieve their dreams and fulfil their goals. Our vision for all our pupils is that they become inquisitive, ambitions and independent young adults and when they leave us, they will have the skills, knowledge, and character they need to take them on to university or the workplace.

What we offer:

The opportunity of working within a supportive, friendly, and well-run school.

The Trusts commitment to staff wellbeing including generous calendar dates and INSET days.

A strong commitment to your professional development and career management.
