School Accommodation

children in the computer suiteThe school is housed in a large building which was formerly two schools. There are 21 classrooms plus a library, computer suite, a design technology room, a conference room and two small group teaching areas. One of these is used by the many peripatetic music staff who visit the school.

In addition to the main school there is a separate building which houses kitchens and two dining halls. The school has a large field that accomodates the wide range of extra curricular activities that take place.


Staffing for September 2006 (including the headteacher) is 27.0. In addition there are 3 nursery nurses and 14 child support assistants.

The school is committed to the principles of Excellence and Enjoyment and staff work hard to ensure pupils do well – both in and out of the classroom. Many clubs and activities are run at lunchtime and after school. The school was recently awarded the Activemark and the Positive Health in Schools Award.

Residential visits and school productions ensure pupils enjoy a wide range of experiences. All pupils in Key Stage 2 are taught French & German.
