The Curriculum

The stimulating curriculum is broad and tailored to individual needs. Our multi-sensory approach encompasses every type of learner, and imaginative teaching methods ensure all children thrive. 

Games & The Arts

Sport, art, DT, music and drama are pupil-centred and all-inclusive with countless opportunities to develop interests and discover talents. Every child benefits from specialist teachers supported by state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.

Pastoral Care

Our Catholic ethos values every individual and we go to great lengths to ensure the fulfilment and happiness of every child. Pastoral care is inextricably linked to the structural organisation of the school, through the quality of teaching and learning, the exceptional relationships between staff and pupils, and between the pupils themselves.
