Education with no gaps between Primary, Secondary and Sixth Form.
We believe there are many benefits to all-through schooling and we are big advocates of more all-through schools being developed in the country.
These benefits include:
primary and secondary staff learning from each other and collaborating on teaching and learning
a curriculum that develops knowledge and skills seamlessly from 4 to 18
the removal of the upheaval at age 11 and the too often wasted years in Year 6, 7 and 8
The design of our all-through school is constantly evolving so that we get the best out of staff and pupil expertise.

A growing number of staff working throughout the school – from senior leaders (e.g. the inclusion leader) to pupil achievement coaches, to specialist teachers
