Welcome To Our School
The school has 11 modern, well equipped classrooms plus a library, music room, art room and a large all purpose assembly hall, which is fully equipped with stage lights and an excellent sound system. The new twenty-eight station computer suite was installed in 2005 and runs a wide range of educational software. At present there are electronic whiteboards in 4 classrooms and digital data projectors in every one. We also have a 'wireless' facility for Internet access throughout the school. There are two hard play areas and a large playing field, a new adventure play area and agreed areas for specific types of games and "quiet" activities. The field is enclosed and surrounded by trees, and banks of shrubs. In addition there is a woodland area with a pond and an enclosed outside area for early years play and learning activities. We have recently made some raised beds for growing vegetables and have installed a greenhouse for children to learn about propagation. There is an attractive entrance foyer and reception area and electronic access control on all main doors. The main pupil/parent entrance and cloakroom now has a wide TV monitor on which the school's weekly diary, general notices and pupils' work is displayed. The school is fully adapted for disabled access, with bespoke toilet and washroom facilities and a lift to the upper floor.
