Who's Who

"Pupils say, ‘lessons are fun’ and ‘we wouldn’t change anything about them, as they teach us everything we need to know’. Teachers plan lessons that engage, enthuse and challenge most pupils."


"Senior leaders have a highly aspirational vision for the school and are not prepared to accept second best."
