The school was built in the early years of the last century and first opened on 8th April 1913. It consists of 6 classrooms, a Nursery, a Resource/Conference Hall, ICT suite, library, cloakrooms and stores. An extension was built in 1996 to add a new Main Hall (used for assemblies, PE and dining), offices, staff room, changing rooms, kitchen and reception/admin. The school has its own enclosed playing field, nature/pond area, two playgrounds, substantial car parking and a large Nursery play area. There is disabled access at all points and the whole school is on one level. The site is fully enclosed and security restricts public access to the school to the main entrance which is controlled by a remote access entry system. All doors used by pupils at the start/end of the day and during break times are monitored by members of staff.
To enable our security procedures to be as effective as possible parents and visitors are requested not to enter school at pupil access points, all non staff access being directed to the main entrance.
