Our school community believes that everyone has the right to achieve their full potential: socially, emotionally and academically. Therefore, we will work in partnership with our community to provide a safe, stimulating and challenging learning environment. The provision of quality learning and teaching is at the heart of our vision.
In order to achieve our vision
- The School Community – pupils, staff, parents and governors – have rights and responsibilities within both their school and local community.
- All involved within our school have the right to achieve the best that they can socially, emotionally and academically.
- We are an ambitious school where all our pupils are encouraged to become resilient, confident and independent learners.
- We teach a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes logical and creative thinking, preparing pupils for the demands and opportunities of the 21st century.
- We promote a set of moral values: honesty, integrity, self-discipline and good judgement.
- We promote tolerance and respect for others.
- We promote equality, diversity and inclusion; seeking to find creative solutions to meet the needs of all within our school community.
- We work in partnership with others, to develop a shared understanding and strategies to achieve the vision of our school.
- Our learning environment will be safe through rigorous safeguarding procedures, stimulating through use of new technologies and challenging through extending the learning environment.

We converted to an academy during April 2021, joining Stanley Learning Partnership, formalising the successful working partnership we already had with local schools.
