Welcome from the Principal

The young people who choose to join us will become part of a great school which provides a unique and innovative education, preparing them for success in a rapidly changing world. We are a happy school with high standards of behaviour where students feel safe and secure.

Our teachers build strong relationships with every individual student. They nurture their personal growth and through carefully designed experiences, support them to become confident, ambitious and socially responsible young men and women. 

We have thought hard about what we need to teach and how we need to teach it. Our curriculum has been planned to cultivate scholarship, intellect and creativity as our students explore a rich body of knowledge across a broad range of subjects. Through our careers, enrichment and Day 10 programmes, we build their capacity to take advantage of the opportunities this academic education presents and develop their commitment to improve the lives of others in their community and beyond.

Our students are given significant opportunities to make decisions about their learning in lessons and in the enrichment activities they participate in. We know how important it is for students to take ownership of their education as it increases their engagement in it. Our commitment to this is implicit in our statement that in our school you ‘Create your future’. The school is sponsored by London South Bank University which provides support and engagement opportunities for our students throughout their time here.

I am absolutely determined that this school should be a safe haven where every child enjoys their own journey of discovery, creativity and imagination and develops a love for their learning. They will leave our school not just with qualifications showing their academic success, but also with the capacity to think clearly and deeply, a desire to act with integrity and to show kindness and empathy to others, and with the character and experience they need to thrive in the world.
