Pupils benefit from belonging to a genuine community school, which results in:
- increased investment in the site and facilities;
- opportunities for pupils to contribute to and work within the community;
- a wider range of learning opportunities both during the day and beyond.
There is considerable community activity on the site which is open from 7.00 am to 10.00 pm on most days. There is a full programme of adult education classes, as well as the use of the facilities by local groups and organisations. The success of the community dimension was recognised by the achievement of the prestigious Schools’ Curriculum Award on three occasions and winning the national Community School of the Year Award in 2006 and 2007.
