What says..

The headteacher made up her mind to become a teacher aged 6 when she realised that she would be much better at getting the children to sing in assembly than the grown up in charge. ‘No frills – you get what you see - but it is still a school that shines,’ said a parent. Two lovely courtyards filled with roses, refurbished with money raised by the parents' association and with much input from the students, great places to sit and revise.
