Prospective Sixth Form Students - Please see our Virtual Open Evening Video


Throwback to last Children In Need. Hopefully we can go singing with Pudsey again next year!


Our memorial board hangs with pride in the atrium. Lest we forget. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.


The results are in. 10 merits and a distinction! Yet more fantastic results for our students in their graded music exams! Our 100% pass rate continues. Congrats to all the students and their teachers!
