Mission Statement

We provide a highly academic curriculum and disciplined environment which enables our students to achieve the highest possible qualifications. For our students gaining these qualifications and going to university is life transforming. We are absolutely committed to improving the life chances of our students and enabling them to become successful citizens and leaders. Our families come from all parts of the globe and they are highly aspirational for their children. We share in this aspiration and do what is needed to help students succeed.

We are a multicultural Trust and we actively develop our students as British and global citizens. Students have a multitude of opportunities to develop a whole range of skills and contribute to the school and wider community.
