About the school
Academic excellence is achieved through a relentless focus on wellbeing which builds self-esteem, confidence and a sense of belonging. A truly holistic and individual approach enables personalised support both in and out of the classroom. No one is invisible or slips under the radar here.
A growth mind-set celebrates hard work and effort not innate talent. In focusing on the journey and in embracing mistakes and failure as part of improving, children build the resilience and risk taking required to succeed.
A rich, broad and stimulating curriculum is delivered by staff recruited for their desire to see children flourish and overcome hurdles. This, alongside excellent staff ratios, ensures that real growth happens.
An emphasis on lifelong learning through a Philosophy for Children programme, develops critical and abstract thinking. Children learn to question, evaluate, decide and articulate. In listening to others, and building on their ideas, academic standards are lifted for everyone and children develop those important soft skills such as communication and teamwork turning them in to learners of the future.
