Key Principles

Learning: with every student having a broad range of experiences and challenges, both inside and outside the classroom, and receiving first class teaching to ensure that they achieve their full potential.

Caring: where every student is safe and secure so that they can learn with confidence, and where consideration for others and self discipline are developed.

Community: to work as a sports college to be a centre for learning for our whole community and, through this, to provide the best possible opportunities for every person who uses the school.
