The School provides very good opportunities for students to develop a strong sense of community through activities which engender feelings of lasting and belonging

The school provides opportunities for Gifted & Talented students t flourish both inside and outside the classroom.  Examples of these opportunities include:

  • creative writing workshops at Tate Britain
  • public speaking challenges
  • visits to Queen Mary College to participate in London Science & Technology challenge
  • extra courses and opportunities to participate in national competitions for gifted Maths students
  • coaching by professional football and basketball players from London clubs for talented Sports students
  • involvement in the "Advanced Master Chef Saturday" programme for Food Technology students
  • elite work placements in the Law, Medicine and Parliament for Year 13 students

The vast majority of our Sixth Form students go on to University or progress on to other Higher Educational institutions and employment.
