What says..

There are eight acres of grounds but not in the sense of lawns and pitches: instead hills and trees, enough grass for a running track for sports day and games and a dingly dell full of wild garlic and bug hotels. Wellies are essential kit. Not only is the art wonderfully vibrant and diverse, meticulously conceived and taken up with great skill and enthusiasm by the children, it’s so sophisticated as to be highly covetable.

What the school says...

Many factors help create the distinctive Paragon Atmosphere. Our emphasis on laughter and having fun... on being stimulated and inspired... the way we bring our lessons alive... our Christian ethos and strong morale framework... our caring atmosphere... being based in a beautiful Georgian house with stunning grounds and woodland... the way we involve parents and members of the local community its these and much more.

We're proud of our consistently impressive academic results but we strive for much more than success in exams. We believe in nurturing and developing the whole child intellectually, physically, spiritually as well as emotionally. As W B Yeats said: Education in not filling a bucket but lighting a fire.

Special Education Needs

Provision for children with special educational needs is a matter for the school as a whole. This also takes account of the exceptionally able child who will have his or her own needs, for which the class teacher will make provision through extension activities. If the progress and behaviour of a pupil has cause for concern, the pupil will be monitored, assessed by Head of Learning Support and may be registered to receive Learning Support. Provision varies between in-class support and/or withdrawal for a number of sessions each week. 10-09
