Thank you for considering our school for your child.

Our school is a warm and friendly community where everyone is made to feel special. It’s a great place to work, learn and play.

Our children try hard to look smart, behave well and to do their best in all areas of their learning. I am delighted to say they make a great success of this and achieve high standards in all areas. The children benefit from a super team of dedicated teachers and support staff who endeavour to make every day a good day and ensure that each child achieves their God-given potential.

Sport has a high profile here and we are regularly involved in lots of competitive sport with other schools and we seek to offer a wide range of sporting opportunities for all age groups. Other talents are developed through our active choir and instrumental group who perform for the school and the local community. We also hold school productions and class assemblies to which parents are warmly invited.

We run a wide range of clubs at lunchtimes and there is a selection of after school activities. Our Breakfast Club ensures a good start to the day for lots of children and we also have a thriving After School Club open every school day until 6pm.

This is a lovely school in a beautiful village and I hope you have been encouraged to find out more and become a part of our school community.

Please see the documents below to help you apply for a place.
