Ready to Achieve

Personal Development

Our curriculum is broad, diverse, and inclusive. It recognises the wide range of interests and backgrounds of our students and community, and both supports and promotes high aspirations.

Our students have opportunity to access not just a high-quality education, but a plethora of clubs, trips, visits and other opportunities to broaden their experience; enhance their communication and organisational skills; and develop their cultural capital.

Our school values of QUESTIONEXPLOREGIVESUCCEED form the core of our curriculum – with students developing these values across all of the taught and wider co-curriculum offer.

We recognise the challenges that many of our students and families have faced during the pandemic, or may be facing now, and we have a skilled and dedicated pastoral team who are able to offer enhanced support for students and families facing challenges. Their contact details can be found here.

We place immense importance in good attendance, and actively promote and support strong attendance to school. Good attendance will allow your child to develop our values and support them to become successful and confident adults.

At CoDA we value student voice, and student council opinion to continue to ensure that we are a school that students, and staff, enjoy being in.
