Director of Studies

Mr Saleem Ahmad

The development of the curriculum has never been so important and with all the changes ahead it is vital that our Director of Studies lead our fantastic teaching team towards an effective and smooth transition.  Currently the whole school curriculum has been developed to adapt to the governmental changes and an internal progression scheme has been deployed, which goes further towards nurturing our children and harnessing their potential.

As the Director of Studies, it has been a pleasure working with passionate staff and happy children towards a common goal; making their lives more successful. We have made continual developments over the year and being able to implement a Virtual Learning Environment has been one our biggest. Students are able to access work around the clock and seek support in a safe environment even over the holidays, a time where quite often more support is required.

Whilst the school continues to grow stronger our academic success places us within the top 5% of non-selective schools nationally and in 2016 achieving 80% % A*-C including students with ‘English as a Foreign Language’ was a notable achievement.

Rigorous quality teaching is the key to the rich learning environment we are able to offer children at our school.  Small class sizes, impeccable behaviour and a thirst for learning and make for one of the most conducive to learning environments possible.  A tailored curriculum for every student allows us also to adapt to the child’s needs and respond swiftly when necessary.
