Information about the school

The School was founded in 1865 when it was attached to Holy Trinity Church and is popular, oversubscribed and modern. Over 24 different languages are spoken by our pupils.
Our exciting enriched curriculum offer provides pupils with an opportunity to participate in music, physical education, musical theatre and art. Our teachers are released from class on these days to plan, meet and develop their skills together.
Our pupils behaviour is exemplary and is reflected in their conduct around school in their varied pupil leadership roles.
Our aim is to create a community where our core values of respect, love and honesty are seamlessly woven into all aspects of our lives and the curriculum. We encourage with praise; we teach by example; and are proud to provide a safe and happy environment that nurtures every child. "The school's values of respect, honesty and love are understood and upheld by pupils."
