Testimonial

“Pupils appreciate the rich extra-curricular activities which develop their sporting, musical and academic skills. For example, pupils spoke enthusiastically about the ‘apprentice day’, where they have the opportunity to experience a range of jobs. Pupils realise the valuable contribution they can make to the workplace as a result of this experience.”

Testimonial

“Leaders ensure that time is allotted during the school day for enrichment opportunities so that all pupils can benefit equally, including disadvantaged pupils and the many pupils who rely on school buses to get home. This typifies their commitment to securing equality of opportunity for all pupils. The strong enrichment programme also contributes well to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”

Testimonial

“Our students are inspirational young people. What I enjoy most about working at the Trust is that we are able to give these students opportunities that they may never have dreamed of. Space Camp in Alabama, Outward Bound residentials, or even the opportunity to meet Olympic gold medal winners - these are the experiences that shape and define their educational experience.”
