We wholly believe in the tangible benefits of an age 2-13 structure, minimising the need to change schools, and the family environment that a through school engenders. The through model can work to outstanding effect, particularly with regard to pastoral care, student welfare and the quality of relationships between each member of the school community. Our skills and experience in these areas are crucial and, alongside our innovative approaches and the wide-ranging opportunities we provide for our pupils, help create our unique ethos.

Our aim is to inspire all children with a love of learning and to create special and happy memories of their time with us. Children learn best when they feel safe to take on challenges, are interested and feel valued. Learning is celebrated and openly admired.
