Academy Spotlight


As an external student, I have found the student-centred approach to learning to be invigorating. It has empowered me to take charge of my own education and utilise teaching staff support to study in ways that suit me best. This approach has enabled me to excel and develop as an individual in a new sixth form, and has even resulted in my appointment as Deputy Head Girl, thanks to the encouraging and engaging teacher-student relationship.
