The headmistress knows all the pupils very well and is very approachable. The excellent personal development of the pupils and the high quality of the education provided is due to the commitment and dedication of the whole staff team. This is a school where all adults, both teaching and non-teaching staff, work together for the benefit of the pupils.

ISI Report, 2011

Our staff team is one of our greatest assets and includes specialists in languages, music, sport and SEN. The team is dynamic and leads by example; teachers update their skills on a regular basis by attending continuing professional development courses. This results in highly skilled professionals who are fully conversant with current best practice and regulatory requirements. At the same time, they have a sense of fun and an appreciation of the value of nurturing our children's sense of 'awe and wonder' at the world around them.
