the concept

Our secondary school concept

Our comprehensive community school is divided into six year-groups (Years 6–11). Our Year 6 classes are led by teaching teams who are supported by a teaching assistant and an SEN teacher.

Years 7 to 11 are also taught by multi-professional teams consisting of a teaching assistant (only in Year 7), an SEN teacher and a main class teacher. Our Flex Classes are supported by a career guidance coach.

In Years 6 and 7, we pick up on the methods learned at primary school and expanded upon them using a methodical curriculum that has been specially developed for the secondary school. This allows us to create a solid foundation for independent learning and working, and for working towards the ESAs and the MSAs.
