Vision & Values
Our school is committed to real world learning opportunities that ignite students’ passions.
Learners are engaged in collaborative, self-directed learning where teachers act as facilitators.
Our teachers ‘really’ know our children, how they learn best and what steers their engagement; our children will know they are known!
There is strong collaboration with other schools and our wider community. We will draw career opportunities into all aspects of the curriculum to ensure children have the highest of aspirations.
We research and use new pedagogies and tools to liberate learning from past conventions to connect learners in new and powerful ways.
Children will be loved and nurtured and will demonstrate excellent rates of progress and academic achievement.
