Curriculum

We are a Church of England Academy and our mission is to create a distinctive educational community for all based upon Christian faith and values. Our ethos is based on our mission statement ‘believe; in yourself, in others, in God.’  

Our belief is that every student is unique and valued by God. This is critical to the relationships and personal approach to the curriculum that we take with every young person. We aim to develop confident students that have a strong sense of justice and doing what is right. We encourage students to develop belief in themselves in order to be the best they can be. Our students are taught to be resilient, they can work independently and have a good understanding of where they have come from and who they are.
Our belief is that we should value and care for each other.  

Students feel part of a local, national and global community, believing in others and working together towards a common purpose. Students develop into respectful, supportive and considerate members of the community who are passionate about making a difference in a context where faith is nurtured and valued.
