About the Department:

We are an enthusiastic and creative department who work tirelessly for all our students. Our commitment to our students is evident in the high quality lessons that we produce and deliver. Additionally, we work very hard to ensure that our students reach their potential and make progress. This is achieved through effective teaching and marking, organising intervention sessions and revision classes after school. Our staff have worked hard to plan trips which include the Imperial War Museum (Year 9), Belfast, Northern Ireland (Year 10) and the Churchill War Museum (Year 12.)
