SEE INFORMATION TAB
We are a mainstream primary school, educating pupils from ages 4 through to 11 years old. With a one form intake per year, we usually have smaller than average classes in each year group. This means each child gets more opportunity for one on one time with the teacher and support staff, resulting in a greater level of individualised and targeted learning.
Our school environment is one of nurture, support, growth and development where children gain confidence and thrive year on year.
