Additional Information

Our focus is on the education, welfare and personal development of each child. Strong relationships are at the core of this: relationships among pupils and between pupils and staff, all backed up by a partnership with parents.

We recognise that some pupils within the school community may have additional learning needs. At whatever level of study, it is our role to accommodate these individual requirements. The majority of pupils will have their needs met within the teaching framework, but a significant minority will require additional support or extension. Learning extension is given to those pupils who are identified as being more able. More Able pupils are those whose abilities in a subject area are significantly and consistently above the expectation for their age.

The school is inclusive of all faiths and backgrounds and children respect each other’s individuality and achievements. Our motto from 1884 still reflects our approach to teaching and to learning today: Fortiter, Fideliter, Feliciter; Bravely, Faithfully, Happily.

We strive for excellence and creativity in forward-thinking education by ensuring that the children we send from here are not only up to the challenge but set out to challenge the world. 

A means-tested assisted place is offered to a pupil entering at 7+ (Year 3).

Currently, we have a pupil in each year group from Year 3 to Year 7 in receipt of a full bursary.
