We are a school where high standards are at the heart of everything we do.  Wearing the correct school uniform and coming fully equipped for the school day, play a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting the appropriate tone. We believe that our uniform can instil pride, support positive behaviour and discipline, encourage identify with and support for school ethos, ensure that students of all races and backgrounds feel welcome, protect students from social pressures to dress in a certain way, nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of students.

It was an absolute privilege and delight to watch our Year 10 GCSE Drama students perform Blood Brothers last week. They were brilliant and are a credit to the school. Well done everyone. pic.twitter.com/Ec9D…
