This is a flourishing, high performing 11-18 girls' state school, which was graded 'Outstanding' in October 2016. It is one of the top 3% of schools in the country in terms of student progress.

Students study both physical and human Geography, as well as key aspects of the UK and different parts of the world through a range of investigations and on a variety of different scales that also involve fieldwork in the local area. Due to the high demands of content and concepts within Geography, some GCSE content is now delivered within Year 9.
