Our school community comprises a genuinely dedicated Board of Governors, specialist teaching staff, a range of non-teaching staff and of course our pupils and parents. We have established strong family links and work in partnership with the local and wider community to "instil in pupils the core values of Care, Courtesy and Consideration in a Christian ethos and to promote positive attitudes to learning by encouraging each pupil to develop holistically."
We are proud of our Christian ethos and of the values enshrined in our motto - "Care, Courtesy and Consideration". We are proud also of the high standard of teaching and learning delivered by our enthusiastic staff and also of the wide range of extra-curricular and pastoral provision on offer.
Mr. C.W. Brown
Principal's Welcome Message
Each year our former pupils perform extremely well at GCSE and A Level in local Senior High schools. The reality is that all of our pupils enjoy personal success. Whatever a pupil's aspiration or ambition, talent or gift, we can provide a solid foundation in the initial stages of post-primary (Key Stage 3) - thus ensuring that each child attains their potential.
A visit to our website can only provide you with a glimpse of what we offer and what we are so proud of. So please feel free to contact me should you wish to visit our school or if you have a particular concern or query.
