Curriculum

What does our school offer?

Our school seeks to provide a safe and caring environment, where learning is the focus and the welfare of each child is of the utmost importance.

Our students are given a sound academic grounding, but they are also extended in many other directions – in the creative arts which introduce pupils to music and many two and three-dimensional art forms, upon the sporting field, and in their overall development as individuals.
