It is our pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to you and we hope that you will find all the necessary information that you require about our school and our unique approach to education. The High School opened in September 2012 and we have now reached the stage in our development where we have 550 pupils in years 7-11. Our sixth form largely comprises our own students, though we do also benefit from students joining our sixth form from other schools. In total, therefore, we have approximately 660 pupils that benefit from our virtues-led approach to education that nurtures both the minds and hearts of our pupils.
Pupils this week explore one of the golden threads "Trust In God" and how famous individuals (or situations) where their belief in God (and virtuous living) has influenced them.
Today is International Day of Families. It is a time to remember the crucial role the family plays in our world's cultures and societies. What does your family mean to you? Pupils learn about the importance of family and the role of children within this unit.
Pupils learn the place of democracy in Britain promoting British values. This week to tie in with national election week and the rule of law. Pupils understand mutual respect for those with different faiths and beliefs and those without faith.
On Mother Earth Day, it's a reminder to ourselves - more than ever - that we need a shift to a more sustainable economy that works for both people and the planet. Let's promote harmony with nature and the Earth. Awe: It is awe inspiring that we have been created by God and no-one else on Earth is like us. Kindness: I help the earth by looking after all of God's creations.

The other pillars are faith, prayer, charity and making the pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. Wishing all our Muslim families a blessed Eid.
