Christ-centred education
Teaching young people the truth about God and His world is at the centre of Christian education. As our senior students progress through the school they gain a deepening awareness of God’s plans and purposes for their lives

The content of a Christian curriculum will not be vastly different from that seen as the standard curriculum taught in most schools today. It is the context within which that content is placed which makes the difference. Christian education derives its context and basis from truth and values taught by God through the Bible. In our secure environment, where achievement at every level is encouraged and supported, students will engage in a structured programme of academic and spiritual challenge.

Work Experience

In the summer term Year 10 students participate in a two-week work experience placement. This is an integral part of their curriculum and is therefore compulsory.

Ideally the placement should be in an area of employment which is of interest. Students find their own placement, gaining experience in writing letters of application and attending interviews. We have a database of companies which students have used in the past which may be of benefit.

Students gain a great deal from completing a work experience placement, learning about the world of work, how to relate to others and benefiting from taking on new roles and responsibilities. Valuable skills are learned and students also find direction on future college and career choices.
