Excellent CAT Test Results for 2017!
This year we are delighted with our results, and particularly the numbers of pupils who achieve above average results, despite the fact that we are a non-selective school.

When visitors first enter our school, they invariably comment on the atmosphere. Described in infinitely different ways, the essence of a visitor's immediate impression is happy, motivated pupils working purposefully, quietly and independently in a calm learning environment of small classes, which are skilfully managed by dedicated, caring teachers who are passionate about their job.
The pupils themselves describe it as a loving family, where everyone is known and valued - a safe haven, where children can be themselves and find acceptance. Pupils thrive here – spiritually, socially, emotionally and academically.
'What is our secret?' is a question I often ask myself. In a fast-paced, constantly changing world of education, I believe that our success is because everything we do is underpinned by timeless and enduring values -attentiveness, faithfulness, creativity, diligence, patience, contentment, obedience, wisdom, tender-heartedness, thankfulness, honesty, joyfulness, love, forgiveness, responsibility and self-control. Values which are rooted in the Christian faith.
If you have never visited this very special place, I would love to welcome you and show you round so that you can see for yourself.
To know God more clearly, love Him more dearly and follow Him more nearly.
