Unique Student Experiences

Unlike other schools, we are able to provide our students with the skills to have a positive attitude to learning. We have smaller class sizes to ensure that students get the attention and help they need to flourish. Additionally, we are able to offer hands on learning with a variety of industry standard equipment where students need to solve real world problems.  Moreover, we pride ourselves on treating our students as adults by letting them take responsibility for their own learning, gaining the real world and vocational skills they need to stand out from the crowd.

We also develop our student’s experience of work in our core projects, where students work closely with local employers to solve real world problems.  This allows our students to gain vital skills for their future career in STEM and also gives them a real experience of work.

Ofsted Inspectors say that “Engineering and mathematics are strengths of the school”, which is reflected in “above average results” in engineering: more than half of sixth form students achieved distinctions in engineering last year, and “almost a third of pupils attained the very highest grades for mathematics”.
