"Sir John Cass Red Coat is an OUTSTANDING School"
Ofsted Report, December 2015

School Specialisms

Business and Enterprise College

Sir John Cass is a highly successful specialist school. We are delighted to announce that we have been redesignated as a Language College and Business and Enterprise College after our Ofsted inspection in May 2008.

As a specialist school we teach the national curriculum but focus on our specialist subjects to drive up results in those areas and across the school.

We place strong emphasis on independent learning and achieving excellent results in our specialist subjects .

The specialisms also bring a commitment to working with outside partners including creating links with local businesses, primary schools and the adult learning community.
