We believe that every person in our school community should flourish and broaden their horizons. Therefore, it is the element of 'enrichment’ that defines our school; we are a church school that endeavours to provide the widest of opportunities for all.
Within our caring and nurturing environment and guided by our shared Christian values, we aim to ensure that all voices in our school family can be heard and all are engaged in learning that develops and challenges them, excites their imagination and provides an opportunity to achieve their full potential.
We see everyone and everything as valued in the eyes of God and recognise that all the members of our family are individuals as we work together towards a society of mutual respect, compassion and justice.
Even the smallest person can change the course of the future." .................................... JRR Tolkien.
