We have moved into our new premises and have been getting to know our new surroundings. Everyone's been so excited and it's been great seeing the students faces when they walked in for the first time. Its so different from what we're used to, with old classrooms and mobiles. We feel really privileged and proud. This is an aspirational building and we hope that reflects in students' attitudes towards their learning.
Features include an outdoor amphitheatre, drama studios, a large hall with pull-out tiered seating and break out "hub" areas for personal study during and after school.
There is also a dedicated sixth form study space and all classrooms boast the latest ICT equipment.
Student Bushra Jalil, 14, said: "I love all the modern technology. The old school was really old-fashioned and cramped. Here, it's so spacious. All the extra spaces to work will make it easier to study. I'm going to be excited to come to school."
Fellow pupil Aatikah Adam agreed. "It's really cool and so much brighter. The drama facilities are amazing," she said.
Sixth former Zaheer Ali, 17, said: "In the old school, there wasn't much space and limited equipment. Here we have access to state-of-the-art equipment – it's amazing."
Be happy, be ambitious, make a difference.
