  • Our broad, balanced and creative curriculum encourages our children to ask questions and develop lively, inquiring minds in a stimulating environment.
  • We aim to establish and maintain a strong team spirit, which enables everyone associated with our school to work collaboratively and to share knowledge and understanding.
  • Through the Christian ethos of the school we want our children to develop the social skills and moral values that will help them become proud, responsible, understanding and caring members of our school and wider society.
