Tutor Time:

Additionally, every student has a 25 minutes tutor time session on a daily basis which addresses a series of themes connected to our set tutor time programme, our assembly programme, and our Focus Week programme, which more widely contribute to our PHSEE programme.

KS4 Enrichment:

The school runs targeted exam boosters and revision sessions throughout the year which can be either voluntary or directed depending on the progression of the individual student. These take place during after-school sessions, Saturday School and Holiday Schools.

Furthermore, we run a wide range of extra-curricular activities – including sports, performing arts, homework clubs and subject area clubs – throughout the school year.

The school-run sessions run alongside a series of externally provided sessions which come at a charge for students

These are in addition to more formal activities including sports team matches and school shows and performances.
