Our vision is for every child to live an abundant life (John 10.10)


The school does not produce a printed prospectus but our blog (on this website) showcases our school with much more information than a prospectus could provide.

Details of Open Mornings for a tour of the school during the Autumn term can be found on the Homepage or the calendar on the Dates page.
