Lyric reflects the thrill and passion of the performer and the dedication and purpose of the athlete.


Each community has its own colour and its own leadership team, comprising of the Head of Community, Care and Welfare Manager and an Attendance Officer. This team leads weekly community assemblies and oversees the staff and students within their community.

Through the Learning Communities, we can offer students a greater sense of belonging within a large school. By working together as smaller communities we encourage healthy inter-community competition, of both a sporting and academic nature; create more opportunities to celebrate success and be proud of the achievements of students within each community; tackle bullying issues more effectively and encourage students of different ages to mix and support one another. We believe this supports our whole school ethos and our ‘Achieving Together’ motto.

Each community has chosen its own charity to support, and fundraising events - led by the students in each community - take place throughout the school year.

Our Vision

Lyric community is made up of staff from within Performing Arts and PE.

As a community we like to reflect the thrill and passion of the performer, plus the dedication and purpose of the athlete. The staff within Lyric have an enthusiasm for their subjects and students resulting in quality Teaching and Learning experiences for all of our students. We try to instil a similar, positive approach to all areas within our community, encouraging students to take an active role in their lives, both in and out of school.
