What The Good Schools Guide says..
In a nod to childhoods of yesteryear, year 4s go on annual Pioneer Camp and learn to put up tents, tie knots and stalk. Bushcraft weekends for seniors involve building shelters and campfires, as well as catching, gutting and cooking their own fish. However, atmosphere is nether old fashioned nor very strict (no standing for visitors). Our two student guides were polite, confident and very honest in their answers to our questions. ‘It’s a great school if your child is confident and outgoing and knows who they are,’ said a parent.

Special Education Needs
Pupils with learning and speech difficulties are identified as early as possible and are then assessed within our department. If further investigation is recommended, pupils may be assessed by either an educational psychologist or speech and language therapist. If help is needed, pupils are supported within our Learning Support Department and class support may also be given. There is no charge for Learning Support lessons. 10-09
