Message from the Headteacher

"As a school we reflect the best of traditional values and practices while responding to the needs of a changing world. Students are encouraged to be self-disciplined and to show a sense of mutual respect. They are encouraged to aim high and work hard towards the fulfilment of their ambitions and potential. We want them to hold high expectations of themselves and their school. A rigorous academic mentoring programme supports this and parents receive reports three times a year to inform them of their child’s progress.

We are continuing to strive to improve our facilities for the benefit of our students and the community at large. There are active links with business and industry and a close relationship exists with our primary schools. Young people need to learn to work with adults in a co-operative and purposeful way and we view the partnership between home and school as essential to successful education. We aim to establish good working relationships with parents and carers. Therefore, with your support, together we can ensure that your child enjoys an effective and rewarding secondary education."
