All pupils benefit from:

  • in-house catering

We regularly feature pupils’ work and successes on our websites and seek to include all our children in school performances and off-site learning activities, experiences from which they may have been excluded in the past.

Our pupils receive a broad and balanced curriculum, aiming to meet their individual special educational needs. The school is committed to equal opportunities and all our pupils are expected to leave school with accredited qualifications. At all times pupils and staff are expected to work and behave responsibly, showing respect and consideration for others.

We are developing a culture of aspiration, achievement and personal growth for all pupils and we are committed to broadening their experiences through our enrichment programme. Themed days, residential excursions and an active Student Council combine to make this a busy school where everyone’s talents are nurtured and stretched.

Our school motto is ‘Believe, Achieve, Succeed’ so you can see this is not merely a slogan but a guiding principle for whole school improvement.
