About us

Our School

Our school offers a wonderful education; full of opportunities for young people to ‘Aspire and Achieve’. For the last three years, we have been on a journey to become a fully accredited Thinking School. Less than 100 schools internationally have achieved this prestigious status, which is awarded by the University of Exeter.

At the heart of our work is a pursuit of excellence as we believe this is the best way to do well by our children. This encompasses both academic excellence and the cultivation of character. We want to give our students deep subject knowledge, but we also want to help them to become life- long learners who can thrive in the 21st century.

We know that every child needs great teaching in order to thrive. Our students find learning exciting. We plan activities that make them think and that create ‘awe and wonder’ in the classroom. We create opportunities for them to learn together, in pairs and in groups, and to discuss what they are learning because that is what they enjoy. Overall, we aim to ensure that they receive a balanced diet of independent and collaborative learning activities, which are carefully crafted to maximise participation and progress.

Children also need opportunities to thrive beyond the classroom. Therefore, we offer a huge variety of workshops and trips, including ‘outward bound’ adventures, to excite and enthuse our students.

The Thinking Schools Academy Trust, ranked the best multi-academy trust (MAT) in the country for the performance of its secondary schools by the DfE, is made up of a family of schools that work together to “improve the life chances” of all our children and young people. We share a common mission to nurture successful children who are confident and can think and act independently. Our cognitive approach to education defines us but does not create a “one size fits all”.

At the heart of The Thinking Schools Academy Trust is the belief that the work that we do must transform the life chances of students.

We believe that the best way to transform life chances is to actively shape the minds, attitudes and habits of young people through a framework of cognitive education that enables them to become the master of their own destiny.
