Sixth Form Student
The atmosphere between pupils and staff is very positive; students are keen to please their teachers and the staff will always go the extra mile to help their pupils.
Students feel that they belong to the school community. They are proud of what they achieve and proud of the school.
They have the safety of feeing that theres a place for them here, no matter what their strengths or interests.
Ill miss the positive relationship between us and the teachers, the mutual respect and the mutual expectation to give it your best.
