As ever, we would like to thank our parents, staff and students for their unwavering support.​
​Megan Harris, Principal (Secondary)​


The excellent curriculum stimulates pupils and builds upon their highly positive attitudes. It is supplemented by a wide range of extracurricular activities and contributes strongly to pupils’ academic and personal development.

The co-principals are unwavering in their determination to provide the very best school experience possible for every pupil. Leaders, governors and staff have created a strong culture of inclusivity and high expectation.

Leaders have put pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development at the heart of everything they do. It is underpinned by the school’s values of ‘Growth, Belief,​ Team’

Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning. They demonstrate an enthusiasm for learning whatever the subject, settle to tasks rapidly and stay focused for extended periods. The quality of handwriting and presentation in pupils’ books is very high.
