Welcome to our school website where you will find out lots of information about the school and learn about our values. The last Ofsted report captured why it is a very special place to learn and to teach (see above).
We hold our pupils in very high regard and work closely with our families to ensure what we do helps them grow into happy, resilient adults with a strong sense of what they want from the future.
Our school environment is modern and well-resourced with a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room and garden, soft play area and well-designed outdoor learning spaces.
Thank you for visiting the website and please contact the school office on 01308 861155 if you would like any further information or want to visit in person.
