We offer every student an intellectual challenge appropriate to their age and ability. We respect the moral values, different religions and cultural backgrounds of the whole school community.
Students are taught in year groups specific to their age, in exceptional circumstances some students will be in a year group different to their chronological age.
Students are mainly taught in form groups; these are mixed ability. They are then set in the core subjects. They follow the National Curriculum subjects and Business and Drama.

Students are taught in either mixed ability of set class for all subjects. They follow the same subjects as Year 7.
