We are proud to provide an education, which can be tailored to students’ passions in a welcoming and nurturing environment where their aspirations can be accomplished.

Our staff hope to inspire their own subject passion in their students and to create self-assured and independent young people who can play a full and active part in the community.

Students are all well-known and treated as individuals in order to develop both their intellectual abilities as well as helping them to develop as independent learners. We ensure our students achieve the highest possible academic outcomes through a combination of outstanding teaching and the close support needed to thrive in a more independent environment.

The curriculum engenders resilience, self-confidence, empathy and independence. Through these attributes, and the high standards set by teachers, our pupils value effort as a key to success and take great pride in their personal achievements.

We offer outstanding educational experience for our students who choose to come to study with us from many schools in the local area, wider parts of the UK and all around the world

Supporting children across the curriculum, often with a particular focus on maths, reading and writing
