The Curriculum

We follow the National Curriculum Plus, where our pupils work ahead of the age related expectations and are taught by specialist teachers in music, Spanish, games and swimming at a young age. As they reach the Upper School we introduce more specialist teachers in all subjects.

Games & the Arts

The annual school production casts over 70 pupils and is performed at a local theatre. We also have an annual art exhibition and our games teams have won regional and national competitions. We are a top 50 school for cricket in the country.

Pastoral Care

This is the place where children learn to be empathetic, have self-belief, be brave, do their utmost with earnestness and build strong moral principles. Our guiding values of compassion, belief, courage, endeavour and integrity are embedded through the school from Kindergarten to Year 8. Our teachers pride themselves in putting the wellbeing of the child first. With outstanding class and form teachers and pupils are happy and excited to come into school.

Recent Scholarships

50 scholarships were secured this year to independent senior schools.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

My philosophy is closely aligned to our school values and is one of compassion and kindness. All pupils need to know that they are valued and that we care by supporting their pastoral and academic needs and by creating an exciting and inspiring environment in which they will thrive.
