Introduction from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. As Head of Schools for all four of R.E.A.L Independent Schools, I work with members of the school leadership team to ensure the best possible educational opportunities for our children and young people from across the East Midlands. 

I feel privileged to be leading a fantastic team of staff who are caring, dedicated, highly skilled and very enthusiastic! They work tirelessly to provide each child with an exciting,  individualised and broad curriculum which engages, motivates and fosters a love of learning. 

We have a wide offer of qualifications from GCSEs, to A level, BTEC qualifications and Functional Skills. In addition to these we work in partnership with our vocational group staff to offer some incredible opportunities for gaining qualifications in Motor Mechanics, Music, Digital Media, Construction, Catering, Animal Care, Sports and Outdoor Adventurous activities. The technology and resources our learners have access to are truly exceptional and need to be seen to be believed.

 We have an aspiration for all our children to fulfil their academic potential and become successful lifelong learners. In addition, we endeavour to support our learners to improve their levels of social and emotional intelligence so that they are well placed to succeed and thrive in the future, becoming active and productive members of our diverse society.

We have lots of exciting opportunities for our children and young people to help them achieve their potential working through our values of Trust; Innovation; Achievement.  Mental Health and well being will continue to be at the forefront of our minds and we will ensure that our learners have the support they require to make the progress they are capable of. 

We hope you find this website useful and we look forward to welcoming you into one of our schools to see the amazing things we do.
