Deputy Head [Head of Senior]
When I show visitors around the Senior School, I tell them they will see happy children, working hard. When visitors leave, they tell me I was right. They see a school that is vibrant. They notice a healthy excitement about learning and pupils with a clear sense of pride in their school community. Happy children are successful children. Our GCSE results are typically the best in the borough among all non-selective schools but really and truly it is progress that sits behind the headlines. Careful tracking of individual pupil attainment and appropriate challenge and support brings progress. Success is never far behind.
