Our vision is to be an Outstanding School; one that caters for young people of all abilities and helps them to achieve great things.
We genuinely care about all our students and work hard to create for them a positive culture for learning, that permeates throughout the whole school.

Sixth Form Open Evening
Year 11 students and their Parents or Carers are warmly invited to attend our Sixth Form Open Evening, on Tuesday 4th November. The evening will begin at 6.00pm with a presentation to students and parents, followed by an opportunity to visit the David Friend Sixth Form Centre to speak to teachers about the subjects on offer.
This evening will play an important part in helping students decide their destination beyond Year 11 and is the ideal opportunity to ask questions and gather information to allow them to make informed choices.
Prospectuses and application forms will be available on the evening and applications should be submitted by 19 December.
Bowles Residential Trip
From 10 – 12 October, 20 boys and 6 girls from Years 7, 8 & 9 visited the Bowles Outdoor Centre with 5 members of staff, taking part in a range of activities including skiing, sledging, rock climbing, swimming, team building, problem solving, scrambling, safety awareness, low ropes and zip line.
The students had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, particularly having to make their own beds and clean up after meals!
Behaviour throughout the trip was excellent and I would like to thank all staff and students involved in making it a fantastic weekend.

Year 9 Geographers Investigate
Geography students in Year 9 got the opportunity to investigate crime rates around Northumberland Heath. This included searching for evidence of crime and crime prevention. We investigated five different environments in the local area.
Everyone got involved and had some fun – it was better than just learning in the classroom.
