Our school vision of ‘Learning together, Learners for life’ promotes our ambition for lifelong learning.

We are a school moving forward with purpose to continue to improve the quality of teaching and learning with a commitment to raising standards. We have high aspirations for each and every child.
We are currently looking to expand our highly motivated and enthusiastic team of support staff to support individual pupils and small groups.
