Achieve

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.

B

Believe

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

C

Care

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.

  • New guitar lessons

    2. Beginner Guitar Lessons available.

    We have a new guitar teacher Mel Hayes, who has some spaces for a beginners class on a Wednesday afternoon.

    Classes are very small, 2/3 pupils only. Lessons are priced at £7.50 in advance but are cheaper than ESCC Music Service so represent very good value for money.

    Please contact Rupert Horne on 01903893898 or email info@guitarclubs.co.uk if you are interested.
