We are proud to be supported by our community of parents, governors, staff and our powerful student voice. As a school family we recognise fairness, respect, and resilience and celebrate individuality, success, diversity, equality and a joy for learning. We ensure the highest quality education for all, placing our children at the heart of everything we do.
We are dedicated to ensuring all our pupils succeed – challenging and developing their ability to think independently, building their resilience, wellbeing and enabling them to transfer their skills and learning to all aspects of their life.
We offer our children an engaging and challenging curriculum that connects and celebrates our school, our homes and families, and our place within modern Britain and the wider world. We aim to enrich our children’s well-being, attitudes to learning, resilience and ability to fulfil their potential: personally, physically and academically. Embedding a nurturing and inclusive approach, we strive to develop inquisitive minds, sense awe and wonder and a determination to believe that anything can be achieved.
It is our aim that when our children leave us they do so as well rounded, confident individuals, prepared for the next steps in their education and for later life.
