We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Latest updates from our school

The New School Entrance is now Open

The new school entrance is now open and ready to use.

After two months, the ribbon was cut at the opening ceremony by round-the-world cyclist and friend of the school, Leigh Timmis and I'm sure you'll agree the new entrance looks spectacular.

We would like to encourage you to sit and enjoy the space when dropping off or collecting your child.

A huge thank you to Graham Middleton and the team from Denby Construction and Barbara Goodburn for their ideas and hard work in making our school entrance look so inviting and welcoming to our school community and visitors.
