Through our curriculum we empower pupils to understand and shape the world around them, as well as achieve great academic results. Literacy and mastery of language are at the heart of our approach. We have a whole school reading programme exposing all pupils to thousands of words a year that they may otherwise not encounter. We use technologies to support effective learning both in the classroom and at home, supplying Chromebooks for independent study.
We develop the whole person not just the mind. Our students have opportunities to lead and to serve their local community. Sports, music and the arts are key components of our curriculum. We take care to provide deep learning opportunities for our exceptional learners, and provide tailored guidance for Oxbridge and Competitive Admissions routes into university.
Through the John Roan Foundation our students have access to extensive playing fields, an outdoor education centre, a Sixth Form Scholarship Programme, free music lesson and much more. We enjoy very close community links through our award-winning Parent-Teacher Associate, the JRSA.
Our highly skilled Inclusion Team and designated staff in the Centre for Autism provide personalised learning, training and support where it is needed.
