As it has been reported in the national press, it is with great sadness we were informed early on Sunday 26th November that a member of our school community has been caught up in a tragic road traffic accident in the local area. Following police confirmation, we are deeply upset to learn that one of our pupils, Darnell Harte, is amongst the fatalities involved in this tragic incident and our sympathies and condolences go out to the family and all those affected by the loss of this young life.
Simon Flowers, Executive Principal, commented, “This is a difficult and distressing time for our school community and we will be ensuring that support and help is offered to pupils affected by this awful event. As a close knit community, we all feel the loss of Darnell and will work together in the coming days and weeks to provide all the support available to members of our school family as we manage such a sad set of circumstances.”
Know our children well
We believe that strong relationships lead to great learning. By getting to know children as individuals, we can better support them; our unique Coaching programme is the starting point for this.
Partners in learning
We are a school that serves our community. Our pupils and staff work in close partnership with parents, volunteers, local charities, businesses, colleges, universities and other schools.
Enjoy and achieve
If children enjoy their learning, they are more likely to succeed. We are deeply proud of our most recent Ofsted report and our strong results from the Early Years Foundation Stage to GCSE.
Character for learning
Resilience, motivation and independence are essential characteristics to be successful in the modern world. Our curriculum is designed to challenge and engage our pupils.
