What the school says...

The school has achieved three outstanding grades from Ofsted between 2004 and 2011.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

What The Good Schools Guide says

There are currently six masters degrees and an ongoing PhD in the staff room. The school’s achievements and awards rival those of many prep schools, and when you walk down the picture-filled corridors it’s hard to imagine you are in a deprived area, though...

Special Education Needs

We have a lot of expertise in mainstream special needs provision - the school was included as a best practice example in personalising learning in the GOVERNMENT WHITE PAPER (October 2005). We believe children with special needs should receive an exclusive education in small classes with specialist staff. Whilst our special units have now been closed, the school has retained the expertise of the staff to offer support to children with special needs in mainstream classes. The school also employs a speech therapist for 2.5 days per week and deploys three reading Recovery teachers. Additionally we have devised our own intervention for mathematics aimed at Y1 and Y2.Two of the teachers have specialist dyslexia qualifications. 09-09
