The school vision is we want every student to enjoy their learning and feel valued for who they are; achievement is very high at all levels, because students are exceptionally well-behaved and eager to learn in our warm and friendly environment.

Induction and in-service training are provided for all staff and there is a special internally run programme for NQTs and another for RQTs, as well as access to a wide range of CPD through our Teaching School alliances and beyond.

For posts in regulated activity, the DBS check will include a children's barred list check. It is an offence to seek employment in regulated activity if you are on a barred list.
