Challenge we insist on high standards and we provide a curriculum that meets every students¹ needs. Particular emphasis is placed on ensuring all students develop the basic skills in English and Maths as well as having a greater degree of choice as they get older. We place great emphasis on good standards of behaviour and appearance, which are essential for the creation of a calm and productive environment for learning.

It is a Bath and North East Somerset Authority community school for girls and boys from 11 to 19.
