The Wednesday afternoon sessions are used well to support pupils' personal development learning. It actively promotes traditional British values and endorses the virtues of truth, justices, honesty and a sense of moral duty.

The curriculum is very well designed to prepare them academically, socially and personally. Pupils spoke positively about the school and expressed their gratitude for the support offered by their teachers.
