A Specialist Sports College

We became a specialist Sports College in September 2003. This has brought tremendous benefits such as:



  • superb indoor and outdoor facilities including a sports hall, fitness centre, dance studio, climbing wall and cycle track

  • an unrivalled range of opportunities for students of all ages, abilities and interests – from trampolining to table tennis, street dance to soccer, climbing to cricket


We’re proud of the fact that we describe ourselves as a ‘traditional school’. We use innovative teaching and learning methods within a traditional framework and we believe works best for our students.
