We break up for half term on Friday 27th May. There will be an INSET day on Monday 6th June and students return on Tuesday 7th June.

AcSEED Award success!

We are delighted to have been re-accredited with The AcSEED Award.

The award recognises our commitment to creating a mentally healthy environment and supporting pupils throughout their time at school. ​

Our offer has expanded in a number of ways, including Art Therapy for young people who have experienced trauma, and more recently ecological transactional analysis which uses nature to help with a student’s development.  

The AcSEED review team was particularly impressed by our dedicated emotional and wellbeing support team, our wellbeing and safeguarding offer, our emotional support dog and several other initiatives and avenues of support we offer.

Debbie Battle, Safeguarding and Prevention Officer, said: “I am so proud we have been recognised with this accreditation, however the work does not stop here. We continually improve and review our offer for all our students, in particular our most vulnerable so we can implement the best therapeutic interventions within school.”  

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
