This is a long term contract until July 2019 but could be extended.

They enjoy an enviable reputation both in the local community and beyond, as a place of learning which consistently values and promotes academic excellence with top class facilities.

Their personalised approach to learning, a commitment to innovation and a passion for teaching means that they are able to maximise each student's academic potential. They offer a broad and diverse programme of extra-curricular activities to allow students to go beyond the classroom, enabling each of their bpupils to develop as individuals, discover new passions and interests, and contribute to the life of the school.

They believe that high achievement is possible only when students feel that they are recognised and valued as individuals, and when they understand how they are expected to behave. In school there is an atmosphere of care and concern for each individual student. There is also a clear framework of firm but fair discipline, with each student made completely clear of the school's expectations both inside and outside the classroom.
