Our Ethos

Our school motto is “Inspiring learners for tomorrow’s world…today, through Quality, Creativity and Enjoyment.” We are passionate about what we do and we want to nurture the uniqueness of every child in our care.

"Building on the past….foundations for the future."

We are proud of our Victorian heritage and believe that traditional values do have a place in the modern world. We want all our pupils to be polite, well-mannered and caring members of their local community.

We have a very strong team spirit, among pupils and among staff. We believe that T.E.A.M. stands for “Together Everyone Achieves More.”
