We are committed to developing learners who are: resilient, focused, aspirational in their goals as well a being prepared to be successful citizens of the 21st century.

The school is a named feeder school for Lincroft Academy and Sharnbrook Academy. The school is a bright, modern and inspiring learning environment with up-to-date technology and vibrant teaching and learning spaces for our pupils and staff.
