'Discovery College is a design for learning that creates a rigorous, engaging and authentic experience for our students. We are committed to becoming a centre of extraordinary work in which all students are capable of excellence regardless of prior attainment, needs or background. Student work is the very currency of what we do and it is important to us that the work our students engage in matter beyond grades or exams.
The day to day running of the Discovery College is underpinned by the three concepts of gaps, growth and grit. Students and staff working together to identify gaps in students’ knowledge and skills, then providing the opportunities for students to grow to fill these gaps and supporting students with the necessary grit and determination to do so.'
