Ethos and Values

We are committed to securing the highest standards of education and care for our students within an inclusive learning environment. We focus on the success of the individual and strive to equip every student with the skills for learning and their future success in a changing world. Learning is at the heart of everything we do; we value creative, enterprising and innovative learning and teaching strategies, deep learning experiences and have started to embrace digital technologies. We have developed a broad and balanced curriculum, with a degree of flexibility and personalisation, which reflects our business and enterprise specialism. We have actively developed opportunities for active student leadership and participation. Positive relationships and team work are central to our college community; this includes working with parents to support student learning and wellbeing. We also work hard to sustain an environment in which everyone is happy, cared for and safe. Finally we continue to foster a dynamic relationship with the local community, schools and businesses.
