Our year group are caring, hardworking and always look to take every opportunity available to them. Members of our year group have held lead roles in every performing arts production and this year 21 members of the year group are taking part in Rock Challenge. We also have some very talented sports performers, with some representing Yorkshire and England in their sports. Our year group are Bradford Champions at Girls Basketball and runners up at Boys Basketball and also represent the school in national football and rugby competitions.

This year our students are showing great resilience towards their academic studies and understand the importance of having excellent attendance. The aim of all our students is to have 100% attendance so that they keep their attendance badge, worn with pride on their blazer. Our year 10 students must always be on time to school and lessons, arriving ready to learn at 8:25am fully equipped.

Our expectations of the year group are to show excellent attitudes in all lessons. These expectations go beyond having a growth mind set to learning. Our students will be resilient, hardworking and passionate about achieving academic success. They understand that a key part of this is the completion of homework when set and to revise diligently before tests and exams.

In year 10 our students will have the opportunity to go out on work experience. In doing so our students will have the chance to gain vital skills and experiences within an area of their choosing. Last year students went to a wide variety of sectors including: sports coaching, education, law offices and retail.

Last year, ten of our students were voted as prefects by their peers. Our prefects act as a voice for their fellow students supporting others on issues such as bullying, rewards and attendance.
