Statement From Don O’Neill – Headteacher
“The school, rebuilt in 2007 includes facilities geared towards learning in the 21st Century, such as an Information Technology infrastructure which provides a virtual learning environment in each curriculum area.
Students have the ability to access tasks set by teachers online and submit a completed task back to the teacher for marking. Parents can also track their child’s task progress and view up to date attendance, behaviour and assessment information.
There is a state of the art theatre, with control room, recording studio and associated practice rooms, reflecting our specialist status. Students work in spacious rooms, equipped to a high specification, which undoubtedly creates a climate for further academic achievement and success.”
