Despite the constraints of Covid, students are continuing to embrace school life, giving their best efforts in the classroom and involving themselves in activities beyond the classroom. There is a positive atmosphere in the school which you can see in the news section of our website below.

Covid-19 Latest

There is a continuing risk of Covid and disruption to school life. We have sent home more test kits, but if your child is currently away from school you can collect them from reception.

Head's Message

Screenshot 2021-01-11 at 12.56.42

Academic visits, sports festivals, the Year 6 open evening and even a trip to London remind us of what we have not been able to do for so long. Year 7 have settled into school life and have impressed me with their enthusiasm and ability. 

School life is about academic progress as well as those activities outside the classroom. Students have really embraced this, always giving their best efforts.

Mr J Eddy
