What says..

Fantastic semi open-plan layout, all on one floor, loads of natural light. Corridors of well-equipped classrooms, all with interactive whiteboards, computers and educational displays. Children’s creations abound. Pupils enjoy themselves, eagerly joining in all activities. One of the special things about this school (and the junior school next door) is the massive amount of outdoor space. Plenty of room to run, climb and explore. Children certainly make the most of it – log cabin for special projects and areas for planting and learning. Imaginations soar...

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2013, Janet Berry. SENCo and senior assistant head for three years prior to taking over the headship. Has been at the school for 13 years, starting part time when her children were pupils and progressing through the ranks as they got older.


Much sought after local school. The closer you live the better, although it may still prove difficult to get in. More than 550 first choice applications for 90 places; over half go to siblings. Admission policy strictly adhered to – medical or social needs get priority. Occasional bulge years add an extra class.

Special Education Needs

We have designated time when our SENCO manages a large team of SEN assistants. At present we have a team of four different assistants who work with individual children and with small groups. One of these assistants is trained in teaching of dyslexia, another is trained in teaching children with speech and language problems. In addition, we have teaching assistants in every class. 10-09
