Our Christian Vision

We will nurture each child and inspire ambition and excellence. We build our four pillars of excellence (faith, learning, innovation and community), on the firm foundation of our Christian values. We aspire to be compassionate, to demonstrate wisdom, celebrate equality, tell the truth and live in peace as children of God and as friends within our community.

To go out into the world, with a love of learning, to innovate and serve our community strengthened in our faith.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13

Our four pillars of excellence


Whatever the subject- Maths, Science , the Arts or Sport we strive for excellence through the provision of a high calibre, rounded education.


Providing leadership to our wider community and fostering respect and a community spirit within the school.


Actively seeking and promoting innovation in our classrooms to promote best practice, inspire children and keep their love of learning alive.


We really believe in looking after our children and in giving them the best pastoral care. We live our Christian values and take their mental and spiritual health really seriously.
