the immersive room

We are able to offer a unique experience to learners, embracing them in an immersive environment that inspires creativity and captures imaginations. Whether the curriculum is focusing on Tudor or Roman times, Space, Underwater, or anything else you can think of, the Immersive Room will take you there.


Uniform & pe kit

Wearing uniform is obligatory; all pupils must comply with the school's uniform code. Not only does the uniform and smartness of out pupils add to the school's image and prestige in the wider community, but it contributes to a business-like atmosphere conductive to achievement.



We place a strong emphasis on pupils participating in activities beyond their regular timetable. These activities develop pupils' social skills, as well as their particular talents and interests. Involvement in such activities also creates a more rounded individual that future employers and colleges look out for.
