We offer a modern and well-resourced school (built in 2001) with fantastic facilities both inside and out. All classrooms have a wide range of learning resources including interactive whiteboards. The school has a separate library, a variety of teaching areas and a multi-sensory room.

Integrated within the school is our 26-place Nursery which has its own resources, toilets and playground.

Outside the school has a huge range of play equipment including: a trim trail, inclusive playground, monkey bars, climbing towers and an AstroTurf football pitch.

Most pupils that attend our school continue onto Newhall Community Junior School and The William Allitt Secondary School, both on our campus.
