While the website should give you a flavour, only a visit can give you a real sense of the welcoming atmosphere, positive relationship between pupils and staff and our purposeful approach. We strongly encourage you to come and see us, either on a formal open day or even on an ordinary school day. You will have the opportunity to speak to staff and, in particular, to meet some of our pupils who look forward to showing you their school and all that they enjoy here.
