from Damien Kearns, Principal
It is my pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to you and I 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.
In Global road safety week pupils learnt about making sensible decisions to stay safe.

During Mental Health Awareness Week pupils gained an understanding of the importance of staying positive and knowing what to do when things don't go to plan.
Today on Vaisakhi, Sikhs remember the 5 beloved ones. In 1699 they were the first to volunteer to give up their lives for Guru Gobind Singh Ji's message - 'to always act with virtue, without vice and stand up for the meek'; Guru Ji blesses them with Amrit and bows at their feet. Happy Vaisakhi to all celebrating.
