Why is St Paul’s so special?

Our school is a community that welcomes people of any faith, and none, to come and fully participate.
We retain our historic faith roots as a Church of England school, supporting all, irrespective of faith, on their own spiritual path. While society at large presents tolerance as a virtue, St Paul’s school offers something much, much better – hospitality. A warm welcome to one and all, going out of our way to accommodate those of different faiths.
Everyone in St. Paul’s family is a learner and everyone is special. We hold the children’s needs at the heart of all that we do – aiming for excellence, always.

Our curriculum is built upon the four pillars of:

Wisdom, Knowledge & Skills
Hope & Aspiration
Dignity & Respect
Community & Living Well Together

We believe all our pupils should have the opportunity to experience, ‘Life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) at St. Paul’s, where we endeavour to provide a knowledge-rich curriculum, whilst at the same time, developing skills for life.
