Through teamwork and perseverance, we encourage each other to be the best that we can be. Our ambition is to provide creative opportunities to develop skills in leadership and entrepreneurship, for pupils to reflect on how far they have come and how to be risk takers. They will aspire to be confident communicators, respectful of each other and considerate members of our school family and beyond.

As a school we embrace opportunities to ensure our community will continue to grow and thrive so that we can empower children to have the wings to fly and become tomorrow’s successful citizens.

Hard copies of any information on our website can be requested free of charge from the school office.
