Unashamedly academic

For state students it hasn’t always been a level playing field, until now. We are unashamedly academic with a reputation for the relentless pursuit of excellence and a determination to ensure that every child succeeds.

Message to parents/carers: If you are arriving by car, the school is now accessed from Lumb Lane (M43 7LJ) and NOT Cryer Street. Please remember to drive on to site to drop off or collect students in order to prevent congestion on neighbouring roads.

Thank you.
