The site is spacious, with every area being used effectively to promote good learning habits for all ages and levels of learning. Areas around the school, such as the vegetable patch, wild garden and reflective space allow children to enrich their learning beyond the classroom.
"The school's work to promote pupils'personal development and welfare is good" - Ofsted 2018
Pupils and staff work productively together, in a quiet and nurturing environment where every child is known, and there is time to discuss and discover.

We are here to provide an excellent education for children through the whole day – from Breakfast club to after school club! Come along and see for yourself.
