We are a popular, oversubscribed, 11-18 boys comprehensive school with a mixed sixth form. We have a clear focus on academic achievement. There is an insistence on high standards underpinned by rigorous monitoring of both teaching and learning. An appropriate element of competition gives a sharper focus to most aspects of college life. This has resulted in a steep rise in examination success, which has led to College being one of the most improved schools in the country.
