The favourable staff / pupil ratio allows our experienced teachers to give personal attention to all children and encourages close liaison with parents. We are well-resourced for our broad curriculum, including wireless laptop computers. The classrooms are light and bright with colourful displays of children’s work.



Visits to view the school by appointment can be made at times that suit you, and will normally be accompanied by the Head, Dr Paula Radice, who will be available to answer any questions you may have. Visits to see the Nursery will be arranged to be accompanied by the Nursery Manager or one of the Room Leaders. If you have any further queries or questions, we are always pleased to help.



Set in its own lovely grounds, with woods, playing field, astroturf pitch and gardens, the school really does feel like the family home it once was.  Children come to school every day smiling: they enjoy their learning, and have great friendships across the year groups. This nurturing, caring environment is the starting point for the best learning, in all its aspects.
