Our “small schools” system means that we have divided our very large school into a collection of smaller schools, which we call Colleges, each of which has its own Headteacher and team of staff and accommodates about 400 students. Year 7 students join one of our Colleges – Aquila, Orion, Pegasus or Phoenix – where strong relationships and a clear identity foster outstanding learning. Post-16 students join College VI whilst the Creative and Performing Arts (CPA) College provides specialist teaching and facilities across the Collegiate in Art, Drama, Dance, Design Technology, Media Studies, Music, Photography and Sport; most of this provision is in our new £4 million building, The @RC, delivering excellence in the arts for our students and community. In addition, the MacKay College provides specialist support to each College, delivering excellence in our inclusion work and underpinning all of this is our Specialist Science Status, which makes Science an area in which our students excel.
