We never underestimate that for some students, the step up to high school can be an anxious time. We work closely with our partner primaries to ensure we have a clear understanding of individual student needs and are prepared to support them from the day they arrive.
We have clear Behaviour for Learning and Anti-Bullying policies, which underpin our ethos of valuing and supporting every learner.
Students can trust our staff to take rapid and appropriate action to address any needs or concerns they might have.
We are investing heavily in providing strong pastoral care and guidance for all students. With only 420 students in our second year, we will know every child.
Our students have the best in pastoral support to monitor their progress, deliver the SMSC curriculum and ensure every child gets the individual attention they need.
