What the parents say...

This is a very happy and creative school with lots of interactive learning. The teachers are supportive and challenge the children where needed. They arrange fun and informative trips such as visits to farms, stately homes, the beach and museums. They also arrange workshops in school, most recently an African dance/drumming workshop. Mrs Hughes is an excellent head-teacher. Her educational knowledge, experience and enthusiasm/passion is second to none and as a parent I feel I can discuss all areas of my children's learning with her and that she reacts appropriately. Its a fun place of learning and the children enjoy going to school and participating in lessons (as well as sports, cookery, singing and acting.)
