Pupils are regularly consulted about all aspects of school life, empowering them to take an active role in their development. Chapel provides a short, but valuable sense of calm at the start of the school day and offers a place of solace for pupils of any faith or none.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

‘Believe to Achieve’, our motto, remains as true of today’s pupils as it has been throughout the school’s history. Our focus is on character education, striking a balance between academic study and 2nd curriculum activities, where compassionate pupils develop self-confidence resilience and a hunger to take on new challenges.
