We are a highly successful Nursery, Primary and High School situated in the stunning surroundings of North Herefordshire. We cater for children from 3-16 years of age in two separate schools.

The schools have existed for over 50 years, federating in 2008, acadamising in 2011 under the umbrella of one academy trust, and establishing a Nursery in 2012.

In the local community, we have an enviable reputation for high standards, providing a quality education in a safe and welcoming environment. Behaviour at both schools is outstanding. As a result of our successes, we are the school of choice in the area.

Our motto is “enjoying learning together” which encompasses the shared vision to develop the notion of and celebrate the benefits of all-through education.

Our mission is to provide excellent all-round educational experiences in a nurturing environment of traditional values. We aim to ensure every child is happy, safe and successful. We strive to provide the best education locally inspiring our children to exceed their potential and develop into resilent, well-rounded, independent young people who are equipped to flourish in a modern global community.

Our pupils achieve their potential academically with many exceeding expectations. We place a strong emphasis on developing the whole child and therefore, work hard to provide an all-round education for our pupils. We offer many different experiences inside and outside the classroom, e.g. Duke of Edinburgh, foreign expeditions, forest school, values education, to ensure our pupils have access to a variety of different learning experiences.

Our staff and pupils are proud of our school, its high standards, its values and its strong emphasis on personal development. We believe that our children deserve the best education possible and values that prepare them for the future.

We welcome all children to our school and guarantee to look after them, nurture them and provide them with the best education possible.
