We are slightly smaller than most secondary schools and I believe this contributes to our ability to know and understand all of our students and to provide each one with the individual support they need to develop their confidence and enable them to thrive.
I am committed to bringing the best out of each and every student whether it is academic, sporting, creative or social. As a college we are striving to become outstanding and we have already seen a significant increase in results over the last two years. We are currently above Hampshire and National on all headline measures, with 50% achieving the new Level 5+ (strong pass) in both English and Mathematics and 30% achieving the new Level 5+ English Baccalaureate measure.
We place a high importance on our teaching and learning to ensure that every student makes the very best progress and we treat all students as
individuals. Academic excellence is at the heart of everything we do.
We have a wonderful team of dedicated staff who are committed to providing students with exciting learning opportunities that equip them for the next stages in their lives. By creating a stimulating and productive environment, we prepare students for life and work in a global and connected community. Our 'learning for life' ethos incorporates our four key values; achievement, engagement, enterprise and respect.
