We are an all-ability, 11-18 school with 879 students on roll and we were granted Academy status with effect from 1 June 2011. Our catchment includes the town’s Primary School and six primary schools from the surrounding villages.
We work very closely with these primary schools with both governors and headteachers working together to provide the best possible education for all children in the cluster.
The school is situated close to the edge of the town with views over
the surrounding countryside. Subject departments have well-equipped suites of teaching rooms, all with interactive whiteboards or projectors, and our seven ICT suites, with over three hundred computers, ensure that computer-based facilities are always available. Our sport and leisure complex provides excellent indoor facilities together with a large, floodlit Astroturf pitch.
In 2009 we opened our Student Services Centre, the first of its kind to be established in Herefordshire. The Centre sets a new standard for inclusive and supportive secondary education, bringing together all essential pastoral and academic support services under one roof.
