This is no ordinary school. There are many excellent schools around, but they all have a very different feel. We are a lovely school with a genuine ‘feel good factor’ throughout. Our mission is summed up by 3 words, Engage, Enthuse & Inspire, which underpin what we’re all about. As a result, visitors are invariably struck by the energy/enthusiasm of our staff & the excellent relationships evident with students.
