DfE Behaviour Hubs Graduation & Ministerial Visit

I am delighted to share that in the summer term, the school graudated from the programme and our case study and significant improvements in our behaviour culture were recongnised by the Department for Education. To support this, the school was priviliged to be visited by Minister Robin Walker (Minister of State for School Standards), Rebecca Harris MP, Laura Stagg (Director of Education for the Education Development Trust) and other DfE representatives to receive external validation of the work that we have done.


Press Release

This year’s Year 11 cohort are the first to have sat examinations since 2019. Its sometimes easy to forget that this cohort of students entered their final year of school under COVID restrictions, and many will have felt uncertain as to whether examinations would have taken place at all. Sitting exams is an experience that can be very stressful, and our young people have not only navigated them with confidence and maturity but have done so following two years of disruptions to both their learning and their lives.


USP Visit

On 29th June, as part of our Careers program the Year 10s were given the opportunity to attend a day at USP College. The pupils were offered a range of activities to do so that they gained an understanding of the courses on offer at the college and the chance to meet with staff and pupils.
