We only ever serve food we would be happy to be served ourselves. Most of our meat is Red Tractor accredited and British, our eggs and mayo are free range, our fish is caught from sustainable stocks, our coffee and chocolate are fairtrade.
To further reduce food miles, 90% or more of our fruit and veg is grown in the UK and we visit the farms where they are grown regularly. But sourcing great ingredients is pointless without properly skilled chefs determined to turn it into great good every day, so we invest in that rare breed as well.
All of our foods are prepared in an environment where nuts and other food allergens are present. If you have special dietary requirements, please speak to our Executive Chief who will be happy to find something suitable.
Students respond well to skilful questioning. As a result, they think deeply and use skills such as inference and empathy to move their learning on. Very effective learning was observed in a science lesson in Year 7 where skilful questioning led to students challenging their own thoughts and considering the views of others.
Students receive excellent information, advice and guidance, including careers advice. All students leaving the academy go on to further or higher education, employment or training.
Students in the sixth form feel valued and supported. During their time in the sixth form, they take on many different responsibilities around the academy, including supporting and mentoring younger pupils.
