All of us believe that each and every child has the potential to succeed and enjoy their time at school - we give them the opportunity to do just that.

I would like to offer a warm welcome back to the year 10 students. Over the past week I have visited as many classrooms as I can, aiming to see the Y10 students in action as they embark upon this next stage of their academic journey. It has been wonderful to see the hard work already underway in so many classes and by so many students. For many it will be a daunting year, as the demands of GCSE and BTEC fall upon their shoulders; but as this years excellent results have shown, our students are fully capable of rising to those challenges and of grabbing success with both hands.
Our two Senior Designated Professionals for safeguarding including Child Protection are Ms Wood, Deputy Headteacher and Mrs Nicklin, Assistant Headteacher.
