While some lessons are conducted online, and after school games consoles are a favourite pass-time for young people, the real-world Scrabble remains our undisputed king of the boardgames.

Even if a pupil turns their nose up at playing, it is human nature to soon want to get involved. Especially when there is a trophy involved. > > >

Artsmark - bringing learning to life through arts and culture - June 2021

Artsmark is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by Arts Council England – and we have just been awarded Silver/Gold status! Teachers and pupils have been working hard to achieve this. 

School – 'Business As Usual ' - February 2021

While pandemic lockdown restrictions persist countrywide, at school it is business as usual - albeit with diligent 'hands, face, space' safety measures.

In a letter from social worker and a school authority, we were praised us for our 'normalised' school routine. This has provided the stability upon which pupils can continue to 'flourish' in these unusual times.

Our school was also thanked for the 'brilliant' care and support of their young person.
