The school’s curriculum promotes the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) and physical development of pupils at the school and of our local and global society. It aims to prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and expectations of later life.

  • Secure knowledge and skills;
  • be reliable, take responsibility and show resilience;
  • an ability to build and maintain relationships;
  • an ability to work collaboratively in a team and to be self-directed learners
