New Build Photo Updates

Tuesday 24th November 2020

With around 30 weeks until our new block is due for completion, we have a new set of photos to share with you.

Mrs Griffiths, Assistant Headteacher


For information about our reopening in September, along with our latest school risk assessments, please see our Covid-19 Information.

Dudley is now subject to National Restrictions

When your child attends school, it will be compulsory for them to wear a face covering when moving around the school building. They can be removed in lessons or at lunch time, when seated and eating.

We thank you again for your trust and support in keeping our school community safe.

Our Philosophy

Everyone has the right to learn

  • We educate young people to the highest standard to ensure that their potential is realised.

Everyone shows respect for others

  • We value all pupils equally and constantly promote a sense of purpose, self-confidence and shared values.

Everyone takes responsibility for their actions

  • We expect hard work and highest standards of attendance, behaviour, punctuality and appearance.

House Point Totals

We're really proud of the achievements from our pupils.

We recognise them through the awarding of Achievement Points and Attitude to Learning Points.

These get turned into House Points.
