We have classroom laptops, interactive whiteboards in all classes, and offer many extra-curricular activities (see our website for the wide range of clubs that we offer). The large playing field and our generous outside space provides allows the children to thrive with our various sports teams being successful in many local competitions. Combined with active music, arts opportunities, performances and amazing school trips, our school offers the chance for every child to unlock their potential.
We believe in a values based education which nourishes and enables children to flourish, making a difference to the world through who and how they are. Our pupils are happy, safe and well-motivated, showing respect for themselves and others. They are proud of the high standards they reach and of how hard they work at school.
