The Headteacher Julia Hammond, said “I am delighted that so many individual pupils have achieved outstanding personal performance. I congratulate them and I thank all the staff who have worked tirelessly to make this possible. Above all, I thank our parents for their continued support of their children, our pupils. It is only in working in partnership that we achieve such success.”



The school aims for all pupils to achieve to the best of their ability, and excellent teachers, small classes and a holistic approach is what makes this possible.
