Our classrooms and corridors are alive with exciting and stimulating learning where our teachers are encouraged to do things differently.

But our size and ambition doesn’t mean getting lost in the crowd. We are a big school with small community habits. Staff and pupil well-being are an intrinsic value.

Your career development is important to us, because we understand that when we invest in our staff’s future they invest in ours and our children’s.

We pride ourselves on recognising potential and giving it the room to be realised.
