Supporting Our Students

Student support is a particular strength of our school. We are fully inclusive and ensure that all students receive the care, guidance and support needed to fulfil their academic potential. We work with local primary schools, with Parents, other professionals and with the students themselves to ensure that individual needs are identified and then supported in the best way possible. We place great emphasis on transition into the school and supporting students when they leave to go onto work or college.

Our house system works as an extended family where students are in tutor groups arranged vertically. This means that students of all ages work together and support each other. Our pastoral team works with the tutors to make sure that students are successful in school in terms of their learning, attendance and behaviour.

Our student support centre delivers individual and small group intervention programmes, based on expertise of staff, assessments we do and advice from external professionals. We promote learning in a structured, consistent and positive environment, where the focus is on praising and rewarding students for what they have achieved.

We encourage students to take responsibility in the school and support each other through a variety of student-centred initiatives: Restorative Justice, Peer Mentoring, Learning to Lead; and the School Council.
