Vision: To be a ground-breaking partnership, offering a unique range of opportunities of exceptional quality to transform futures through learning.
Teaching staff are uncompromising in the pursuit of excellent teaching and aim to blend the best rational teaching techniques with innovative methods to enhance learning. Teachers encourage students to aim high and the focus of teaching and learning requires the development of skills that will produce well rounded students with enquiring minds and a lifelong love of learning. We expect our students to leave us having developed a sense of self belief that they can take on life challenges and be well equipped to achieve success on whatever path they chose.
Today’s economic climate makes us fully aware that the priority of students progressing into academic education is to continue to develop skills in readiness for employment, further training and university. We are therefore committed to the expectation that every student will embrace tutorial mentoring, enrichment, and destination focused work experience. Teaching staff are equally committed to developing a range of ‘Expert Student Skills’ that will prepare students for professional life and learning experiences that will develop skills and confidence.
We trust that your time within the Renaissance will be both happy and successful. We certainly guarantee that we will support you to succeed but you need to use your time wisely and to work hard. Entry to the Sixth Form is robust; you will need to make an application and attend a formal interview where you will receive professional guidance and support in choosing the right subjects for your intended destination. Stringent entry criteria on admission to sixth form ensure that all students studying A Levels receive the stretch and challenge they need to achieve their maximum potential. Continuation to Year 13 will be conditional upon you having satisfied subject requirements and maintained a good record of attendance. An early application is recommended to ensure we are able to give you the time you will need to receive expert advice and guidance about your future and a full range of subject choices.
