The wellbeing of our students is at the centre of everything we do. We strive to develop the ‘whole person’ and take pride in our approach to personalised learning that nurtures the full potential of each student.

We see wellbeing as an integral part of our students’ learning experience and aim to foster and develop the skills to learn, grow, and succeed.

Our Wellbeing Framework operates within the context of the Department for Education’s Wellbeing for Learning and Life Framework and adheres to our school values.
