Our School

Our aim as a school is to provide our students with a wide range of academic, creative and sporting opportunities which will enable them to develop into well rounded individuals who achieve academic success as well as the personal attributes required for the challenges of the 21st century.

School History

The building of the school commenced in 1969 and opened its doors in 1971. From April 1990 (under Local Management of Schools) the school’s finances came under our own control on a ‘one-line budget’ from the Local Authority. and the Governors, Headteacher and Staff “became the school”.

In April 1995 we gained further independence via Grant Maintained Status with the Governors, becoming ‘owners’ of the site and buildings and employers for all staff.

In September 1999 under ‘new Labour’ we became a Foundation School (LA maintained) with a slight loss of autonomy in administration terms, but retaining responsibility for employment and land ownership. In 2011 the school became a ‘converter’ Academy.
