Teaching areas include well equipped rooms for specialist subjects such as art, science, music and food technology and a craft and design workshop. Students have access to computers for support in the main classrooms and there is a well-stocked library and quiet room where students can take 'time-out' away from their class if required.
Activities outside of the classroom
The school accesses the local environment as part of the school and sixth form curriculum. In addition, the school uses its extensive grounds as an educational resource. The school offers sporting and leisure activities including:
- Cinema, theatre and museum trips
- Computer programming
- Horse riding
- The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
All activities are risk assessed and staffed so that all students can participate. The school also has good links with local colleges and students access mainstream courses with support from school staff. Residential students are encouraged to access local activities and shop in the local community.
