Every year we undertake planning to ensure that we address the current needs of the students and the school. Much of this planning is based on what we have learnt in previous years through benchmarking our own performance both nationally and with that of similar schools. However, in order to be most effective we have to be pro-active in terms of predicting what challenges lie ahead both locally and nationally and hence much of our work is based on in-depth research and being ‘ahead of the curve’.
By taking this forward thinking approach we are in an infinitely better position to create the future we want for our students rather than having to play ‘catch-up’. In essence we want to be ‘preventing’ rather than ‘curing’ issues in order that our students are best able to achieve their goals and ambitions and follow the future pathway they want.
