Pupils of all ages exemplify excellent attitudes to learning. Pupils are mature and disciplined learners who take great pride in their work and are keen to improve. They describe how much they enjoy working collaboratively and do so sensibly and effectively in lessons. Younger pupils work diligently on tasks set without prompting and older pupils demonstrate sustained self-motivation and concentration when working on writing tasks.
