Teaching, assessment and examinations

We are proud of the quality and expertise of the teacher staff in the school. With them we commit to providing an education which allows children to learn, explore, dare to experiment in an environment where it is safe to ‘fail’ and to develop the skills they need to study and progress both whilst in the school and when they move to further education.

A vital and valued aspect of the school is the care provided for pupils with additional needs. We have a SEND Team, including a qualified SENDCo, who provide the continuity, strategies and support needed to enable all students to succeed: SEND Policy

Please note that the financial responsibility for additional teaching or assessments will rest with the family. Please see our Admissions and Fees Policy
