Our Learning Facilities
Our school was rebuilt as part of the national Building Schools for the Future scheme.
We moved into our new home in 2012 and our new specialist facilities include seven science labs, four art rooms (which feature a kiln room and a silk screen wash), two wood technology rooms, a food technology room, eight dedicated ICT suites and a media room and a green room for filming.
We have six music areas which include a recording studio, drum area, a musical ICT suite; we have drama performance areas and a chapel. There are interactive whiteboards throughout the building and lots of other laptops and IT equipment to aid classroom activities.
Our sporting facilities include a 3G MUGA, four astro pitches, a large sports field, an on-site fitness suite, a sports hall and dance studio.
