What says..

Generously sized classrooms, reception area, library and multi-purpose hall all incorporated into the original farmhouse and new extension. Consequently, the youngest children – known as Ladybirds, Caterpillars and Butterflies in the early years are a part of it all (even if the Ladybirds had temporarily opted out on day of visit in favour of a darkened room and a siesta after lunch).

What the school says...

Welcome to a nurturing school with a big personality.

Giving a child the best possible foundations for a bright future is a true privilege. Our fantastic facilities give pupils tremendous scope for achieving the academic, sporting and creative excellence that we encourage. Just as important is the safe, secure and caring framework that we provide, giving children the support and self-belief they need to make their own individual strides forward.

I get huge satisfaction from seeing each one cross barriers and shine in a way that is uniquely theirs and with two children myself, I know the pride parents feel when they see their child thriving.

I look forward to helping your child thrive too.

Gareth Hughes,
Headmaster

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.
