Your new school
This school first opened in 1958 as a co-educational Grammar School for 700 pupils. At the time of opening in 1959 the school building was award winning. In 1974 it became a Comprehensive School, determined to maintain its excellent record of achievement. As the school continued to grow: A new Music block was built in 1980, followed shortly after by the art block in 1981. A new Sixth Form Centre was built in 1992 / 1993. A Languages and Humanities block was opened in 1994. In 1996 the English block was extended. More recently, in 2003 the new Maths block was opened. In 2008 their £750,000 Dance Studio was opened. In 2013 their newly refurbished music department was opened.
Today, this school has approximately 1,100 pupils including 150 sixth formers and over 140 staff. The school has made excellent use of the funding previously attached to being a Technology College in order to provide enhanced facilities which enable our pupils to use the latest technology, deepen their learning and prepare themselves for success in the 21st century. Their IT facilities are excellent; all teachers have laptops which link into their wireless network and every teaching space is fitted with a data projector. They have developed the use of CAD / CAM in Design technology and video conferencing is regularly used to enhance student learning. IT facilities are regularly updated to ensure the school remains at the cutting edge of technology.
