In the department we aim for all pupils to have an enjoyable experience which helps them to achieve their potential. As a department we aim to ensure that our knowledge of learning and teaching is kept up to date alongside using all data accessible we aim to reduce that attainment gap and provide students with the best learning experience possible. Skills learned in our department play a key part in preparing pupils for the world of work and being able to relate learning to real life scenarios helps our students develop not only problem solving but also their character which allow them to be prepared not only for learning but to cope with any situation in the future.
