Ofsted says 'Where learning is good, teachers use their subject knowledge to engage students, stimulate their thinking and set specific targets. In these more effective lessons, tasks are varied and interactive and take full account of students’ individual learning needs'


Accelerated Reader is an exciting project to improve students’ language, literacy and reading skills quickly.  All students in years 7 and 8 will read for 20 minutes every day and complete quizzes on what they have read.  It's fun and it helps our students to make amazing progress in their literacy and reading skill.  Many of our teacher take part too and compete with the students.

Important Message

Dear Parents and Carers,

Our Principal, Jane Willis, has been unwell for some time and has taken the difficult decision to resign from her role with the academy. Jane has written a letter to yourselves, her staff, students and governors which you will find attached to this note. The letter is self-explanatory and needs no explanation on my part. I am sure that you will join me, my fellow governors, and the whole academy staff in wishing Jane a full and speedy recovery.

Yours sincerely
Martin Cocks
Chair of Governors
