Welcome and Introduction
This section of our website contains lots of valuable information about the Key Stage 4 curriculum that your child will follow next year and you will also find out about other key aspects of your child’s educational provision up to 18.
Our aim is for everybody to leave our school with the grades to enter top universities or apprenticeships and to have successful careers. We also aim to support our pupils’ character development through a strong and effective programme of personal development and guidance.
During the seven years your child is with us there are two key moments when they are expected to make a choice of subjects - at the end of Year 9 and when applying to join our Sixth Form. We want to provide every pupil with excellent guidance and advice so that the best subjects are chosen and the potential of every student is reached.
Our track record in examinations is very impressive:
- We provide considerable support for our GCSE students and our results have been consistently outstanding
- The new accountability measure, Progress 8, shows all our pupils making significant progress when compared with other students across the country
- We are very proud of our Sixth Form students who achieved an overall pass rate of 99% ensuring the majority being accepted into the most prestigious universities in the UK
Over the next few years we have set ambitious targets for our future results despite the impact of the pandemic on your child’s education. Of course we recognise what an important part parents play in the success of their child and during the coming weeks we will provide you with information about our GCSE courses and the options process. We hope this information will make you much better informed about GCSE examinations but also provide you with the opportunity to support your child.
Additionally, we will provide your child with information about Careers and Guidance Officer who will be working closely with your child from now up to Year 11 to ensure they have the best possible Careers advice and prepared for the next stage of their life.
We hope you will be able to visit the school in person on Thursday 10th February for our Year 9 Options Evening in the new school building.
