Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Our three Cs: Courtesy, Consideration and Common Sense are at the heart of what we do. The children’s behaviour is excellent and the school produces warm, confident and impressive young people.

We are proud of our independence which leads us to placing children in the right senior schools.

Our pupils benefit from outstanding teaching in small classes where children of all abilities have the individual attention they need to enable exceptional achievement.

Year 8s gain 100% success rate of entry to their chosen senior schools and many leave with academic scholarships or with scholarships in art, music, sport or drama.
