Relationships are enhanced by the college structure. Students say, and inspectors agree, that there is a close family feel to being in a smaller college unit, and that students enjoy school more because of this.
Students participate readily in the wide range of sports, social, art, music and drama activities that the school provides. Many students attend the after school and weekend revision clubs that staff provide.
The school organises the wide range of subjects it teaches extremely well, and reviews them regularly, adjusting its provision to meet the changing needs of students.
