As our first year as an 11-16 school draws to a close, it gives me the opportunity to summarise some of our successes this year.
Our journey started with a building and a team of staff for up to 900 pupils and a Key Stage 3 curriculum only. At this point in time we have an extensive Key Stage 4 curriculum as well as Key Stage 3; buildings that can host 1370 pupils (our school roll in 2016-2017) and a very strong team of staff befitting a successful 11-16 school. Our expansion has been based upon an extremely high retention rate from Year 9 to Year 10 in September 2015 (94%) and even higher in September 2016 (96%), alongside significant over-subscription coming into Year 7.
