Our school motto



We aim to give children a sense of confidence and belief in their own unique abilities. That’s why we’ve designed our curriculum to be as practical, creative and inspiring as possible. Every achievement is celebrated, no matter how small.



We feel a deep responsibility to nurture happy, responsible and confident young people of faith and values.



As a church Academy, we provide a Christian ethos that infuses the wider Academy community. Our teaching and reflection times focus on developing a strong culture of care, respect and empathy for one another.
