School Description

Many pupils join the school with a poor history of school attendance. Staff nurture the pupils. They promote pupils’ self-esteem and character as well as academic success. Pupils value the opportunities the school provides, such as amateur boxing lessons and one-to-one sessions with a personal development mentor. The provision creates a sense of belonging. This motivates pupils to try hard. Staff understand pupils’ learning, social and emotional needs well. Leaders are ambitious for what pupils can achieve. Planning takes careful account of pupils’ needs and aspirations. In the majority of subjects, pupils develop detailed knowledge and skills. Achievement in a few subjects is not as strong. Leaders make good use of the school and local environment to stimulate pupils, for example through the range of sports provided in the local leisure centre. Pupils engage in their education and staff prepare them well for the future. Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. Staff are good role models. They are skilful in calming pupils down. Staff pick up on early signs of potential conflict. Pupils said that they feel safe in school and bullying is rare. They are confident that staff will deal with it effectively should it occur.

Alternative Centre of Education Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
