What they say about us

“Fantastic school. Highly progressive. I have two children at the school and have been a very happy parent for 4 years. Teachers are brilliant and highly engaged as well as deeply interested in the children’s learning and achievement. The parent support network is also great, and lots of parents volunteer to run events through the year to raise funds for the school. This means that there is plenty to spend on things the school would otherwise not be able to afford given the continuing budget cuts from the DoE.”

We were recently visited by Challenge Partners who spent two days with teachers, children and other members of staff. Below you will find documents detailing their findings and some very favourable quotes from Challenge Partners, Staff, and Parents alike.
