Who's Who

“The whole team put 110% into the school.  It’s not just a job, it’s clearly a passion!”

“Teachers and TAs know the children and work hard to support them.  They are always friendly and quick to answer questions or deal with any problems.”

“Head teacher is a strong leader of a great team.  She has been fabulous over the past year managing covid and all the challenges.”

Parents' Questionnaire comments, Autumn 2021.


"We already knew we'd chosen a great school for our child but the conduct of the staff during this trying covid time has reinforced our belief further. You've clearly created a fantastic culture that can weather any storm!"
