WHAT WE DO
Not all students develop at the same speed but, through a broad curriculum, students are able to develop at their own pace and achieve success. Realistic goals are set by the staff, and students themselves, so that individuals can feel a sense of progress, achievement, satisfaction and enjoyment.
School clubs are on offer to everyone and they run to compliment the curriculum being taught each term. Students also have the opportunity to represent their House, the School, the Area and the County. Some of our students have also gained territorial and national honours.
The school has a good reputation for sporting success in both local and national competitions and, due to its size, a large proportion of students represent the school either as an individual or as a member of a team.
Students are rewarded for their efforts at the end of the year. The PE department issues certificates for outstanding achievement in a particular sport; this is the Certificate of Performance. There is a bronze, silver and gold ribbon that can be earned and is worn on the blazer as recognition of their achievement. The ‘Fitness 5’ award can also be achieved. This is a certificate awarded to those students who have shown a high level of effort and commitment in five activities in a year. They have shown a commitment to maintaining their fitness level and being physically active. A 1-star is awarded in Year 7, a 2-star in Year 8, with a 5-star in Years 11-13.
