We all work hard to ensure the children receive the very best education and to prepare our children not only for their next phase of education, but to equip them with the skills they need to become good citizens who really can make a difference in the world. We have a long tradition of sporting excellence and encourage participation and competitive sports through a range of clubs including swimming, cross-country, football, netball, athletics, rounder’s and Taiko drumming. We are very fortunate to have a high-spec swimming pool on site, which was built in partnership with our wonderful community. Our children swim every week from Easter through to the autumn.

Bramble is very popular with the children and brings her own unique air of calmness.
