Autumn 2018-

"Our daughter has already been inspired to learn in Year 1. She has really developed her confidence. Thank you for understanding her and making her love coming to school so much." (Y1 parents)

Thank you for your Open Day. From the moment we were signed in by your welcoming office staff, I was already feeling a warmth from the school.  My daughter was mesmerised in the Reception classroom and outside area. The two boys who showed us around were fantastic ambassadors for the school who could not wait to share their very positive thoughts and feelings about the school as a whole; they were confident and endearing. Thank you for inviting us into assembly; it showed so much about the school and its values and the behaviour was brilliant. I am so pleased I had the opportunity to visit and I hope my daughter flourishes in the same way as the two boys who guided us round have.
