Penny Harrison, one of our Year 10 students, was presented with a brand new wheelchair recently. It was provided by the Whizz-Kidz charity at a training day at Milton Keynes university.
Penny has always been an inspiration and her resilience and determination is something all young people could learn from.

Values and Ethos - A message from the Headteacher
I feel privileged, having been appointed in September 2015, to be only the third Headteacher of this Academy since it opened in 1977. The ongoing continuity that this provides has given the Academy a distinctive and strong ethos in which we expect all students, regardless of ability, to maximise their progress which will lead to high levels of achievement.
We want everyone to be proud to be a part of our community. We want our students to feel safe and that they belong. This can be achieved through high expectations of both students and staff both in terms of professional standards and good behaviour which lead to students having the right to learn and staff having the right to teach.
