Creativity. A pupil’s mind will grow and develop to think differently so long as they are empowered to discuss and debate, feeling that their opinions are valued.
It is all about thinking differently. No great invention was created through accepting the status quo. No successful career was achieved through staying static. Education is not about the filling of buckets. Examination success can only be achieved by the lighting of fires within us enabling the ongoing sparks to illuminate the darkness and encourage us to think differently.
Our pupils achieve exceptional GCSE and A-level results within a caring, cosmopolitan and diverse environment that encourages integration and mutual respect.
Good results are achieved by our small class sizes, teachers who are well-qualified, able to differentiate, and provide extension work for our Able, Gifted and Talented pupils and reinforcement work for those who need it.
For September 2019 entry, our GCSE and Sixth Form provision has been overhauled, and we are proud to announce our three new pathways – the GCSE+, A Level+ and the BTEC driven Careers Programme. We will be one of the very few independent schools ensuring that our pupils will be fully prepared for Higher Education as well as the world of work. The pathways will include a Thinking Differently Programme and Leadership & Service Programme. In addition, Sixth Form pupils will complete an Extended Project Qualification. With these enrichment options, our aim is that our pupils will develop the critical skills to succeed in a workplace that is beco
ming ever more automated.
