We are proud of each other’s achievements and our identity. We aim to create a civilised community which promotes the welfare and development of all.
Our many partnerships are important to us. Our close partnership with the home is essential in order to ensure the highest standards in all aspects of the school’s work, and coherent support for the pupils. This website is an important step in establishing that vital partnership.
