A Specialist Technology College. We were named one of the top 100 most improved schools in the country for our GCSE summer 2012 results by the Minister for Schools, Rt Hon David Laws MP, and our maths and science results were in the top 25% nationally for the progress our students made for value added. We have made this rapid improvement through innovative, student-centred change over the past two years.
