Along with a number of borough schools, we were presented with our Healthy Schools award initially in 2004 and more recently in 2010. It recognises the commitment to the care and welfare of our pupils and their involvement and participation in the life of the school. We are awaiting our re accreditation later this year.
We were originally awarded this in 2001, re-accredited in 2004 and became one of the few schools to be accredited it for a third time in June 2007. This recognised our commitment to the arts, both in the curriculum and in "out of hours" activities in art, dance, music, drama and creative writing.

This has been re-awarded to us every year since 2005 as recognition of our commitment to Physical Education both within the curriculum and in our excellent range of clubs. The high standards we achieve in PE and games was acknowledged.
