Our School

The school was opened in 1987 and after a major refurbishment project and two extensions, is divided into four main teaching areas with classrooms and smaller grouprooms:  Foundation Stage, Years 1 & 2, Years 3 & 4, Years 5 & 6. 


There is an administration block, library and two halls which are used for P.E., assemblies, clubs and dinners.


The school is set in extensive grounds with playing fields, playgrounds and a hard court sports area.
