We have approximately 1450 students and have the highest expectations that each and every child will achieve personal and academic success. We also support every student to contribute actively and positively to the Academy and the community that we serve.
Students at our Academy experience a creative and dynamic approach to learning in all their lessons. In 2017 we secured our best ever GCSE results and were awarded recognition of 'exceptional results' by the SSAT. In February 2017, we were judged 'Good' by Ofsted. We are the only school in the town judged good in all four categories and the inspection team recognised that we are on the journey to becoming outstanding.
