The benefits of lots of space around you combined with the safety and familiarity of having your own home-building where you’re known by staff and fellow students.
In an increasingly digital world it is important to help you to find the balance beteween the digital world and the real world of the classroom and society. By using a range of teaching methods and supports our students have the opportunity to discover what works best for them. All our students use a laptop on a daily basis, either in the lesson or for homework. Depending on what the goal of the lesson is a teacher decides how best to make use of digital supports. As a school we believe in helping our students to develop a broad range of skills for their future. The laptop is used as a tool to support the learning process, learning new things and deveolping new skills remain the primary goals.

Getting off to a good start
As the saying goes ‘a good start is half the battle’! Starting a new school is always exciting and can be a bit scary too. We take great care in helping you to make this move and contact the primary school of all students so as to get a complete student profile. Even before the new school year starts you will have met your new classmates and mentor at an introduction before the summer holidays. The mentor is one of the teachers with the special responsibility of making sure everything goes smoothly and that you find your feet quickly. If parents or students have any questions, no matter how small, they can always contact the mentor for help.
