The school enjoys a spacious building with large grounds, including a forest school, an amphitheatre and a wind turbine.

We are proud of our Good Ofsted rating and offer all our children an ambitious curriculum, based around our school values of Respect, Responsibility, Relationships and Resilience.

Our Senior Leadership Team is ambitious about driving high standards of teaching and learning, and improving outcomes for all children.

The school is also part of an extensive professional network across the River Learning Trust, which encourages collaboration, research and learning for all pupils, teachers and parents in the school community.


Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.


OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.


Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.
