Our Specialisms

Sport

Involvement in sport is a massive motivator for many students and leads to increased academic performance, driving up standards across the school.  We are the leading school for sport in Greenwich and, as such, have superb facilities and resources. There is a wide variety of sports available including football (we are the official Football Academy for Charlton Athletic FC), cricket, rugby, badminton, basketball, dance and athletics.

Enterprise

All students have opportunities to participate in a wide selection of inspiring activities that will improve their problem solving and entrepreneurial skills, ability to work as a team and create business literate students ready for the fast moving world ahead of them.

Communication

Through our Learning Ethos and excellent teaching, we aim to develop our students’ Writing, Oracy and Reading (WORD) skills in order to improve their learning, achievement and confidence in all curriculum areas.  In Key Stage 3 there is a real focus on improving reading skills through the teaching of phonics and our Accelerated Reader programme.  We have a brand new library in the school which generates passion and excitement about literacy.
