Our strong team of staff, well supported by school Governors, offers the very best education and we consider every child, focusing on their progress from their varying starting points.

Children are taught in a high quality environment, where learning is fun, exciting and purposeful.

Our values are central to everything we do – they enrich our ethos and the whole school environment.
