If you are preparing for your child’s first year in primary school or you are new to the area, come, visit our school, and see for yourself what a wonderful place it is. You will always be welcome. Please contact the school directly to arrange a visit.

Our mixed year group structure allows us to co-ordinate academic activities based on ability, enabling pupils to reach their full potential with highly personalised learning opportunities. This interaction with older and younger children – in both the playground and the classroom – enhances the social skills of our pupils, building confidence amongst the younger pupils and developing a caring and considerate attitude in our older pupils.

We create an inclusive learning environment based upon Christian values, which underpin everything that we do. Through promoting a caring, loving and respectful learning environment, we provide the setting for all pupils to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
