Every student is important to us and is recognised as an individual with particular needs. Staff have worked very hard to develop approaches within and beyond the classroom which mean that the learning needs of all students can be met.
Students with additional learning needs
The Achievement Support Department caters for students with an extremely wide range of additional education needs, so that they can access all areas of the school curriculum. We are a fully inclusive school and welcome students with physical disabilities. For comprehensive information on our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) offer, click here.
Gifted and talented students
Students with particular gifts or talents in any subject area will find many opportunities to develop these within their regular lessons. In addition, we have an extensive and growing programme of enrichment classes and other after-school opportunities which focus on gifted and talented students. The programme includes visits to universities such as Durham, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Teesside. For more information, click here.
