Welcome to our school

The school has a long history and we are very proud particularly of our academic and sporting history. We hope you enjoy our website, which is designed to communicate and inform pupils, parents and the wider school community.

 Sixth class ECO project
To coincide with the opening of the new school, a new tracksuit was introduced in September 2012. 6th class pupils decided to send all the old tracksuits and uniforms to a Chernobyl Children's Charity. The pupils also came up with a unique idea to recycle all old and new unwanted buttons. The HOPE foundation plan to take the buttons collected to their Tailoring School Training Lifeskill Projects in India. We wish all 6th class pupils the very best of luck in the ECO UNESCO Environmental Project competition and we commend their efforts to improve the lives of those less fortunate than us.
