About Us


The school has undergone a great deal of work in recent years to upgrade its facilities. We’ve spent around £2m both refurbishing existing areas of the school and creating new ones. The works have included new rooves and windows, complete toilet refurbishments, remodelling of the language rooms to create new classrooms, improvements to the House of Pi and our kitchens, the brand new Glasshouse on the playground and much more. This summer was no different, as we continued the process of improving our facilities to support the delivery of the highest standard of education.

The school is growing in popularity, and each year our student numbers rise. In September 2023 our Technology department had greater numbers than ever, and we adapted teaching space accordingly. C10 was one of the schools largest classrooms, and in much the same way that we remodelled our Languages department in the summer of 2022, we’ve made the C10 and two adjoining storage spaces into two classrooms to accommodate the growing popularity of the subject. Food Technology has also seen expansion as we remodelled the area of the school to allow for more cookers. The cookery room and adjoining classroom were refurbished at the same time, and new equipment was purchased, including a complete set of new cookers and additions to refrigeration.

In B block we continued our toilet refurbishments. In the same way that we altered the toilets at the other end of the block, we used office space in front of the old toilets to create new ones, with a new classroom in place of the old ones.

A long-term plan for refurbishing our Science rooms also began this summer, with C5 being the first room to receive a full refit which will extend to all Science classrooms over the course of the next three years.

And finally, we will be asking students, parents, staff and our governors to help us with a project which will help people – especially new students – to find their way around the school by giving our corridors street names! More details will be sent to you before we break up for summer and we’ll be looking to put your ideas into action early in the next academic year.
