Feeling Stressed?


Feeling Harrassed?


Ofsted say:

"Students show very good motivation; they behave well and are consistently positive about their learning. They feel safe and they are well supported by the sixth form learning mentors. They collaborate well on group tasks and take an active part in discussions in lessons. Students clearly take a pride in their work and much of their written work is well presented."
