We are a Catholic school that firmly believes in providing effective, good quality education for all of our pupils whatever their ability and needs. As a school we have a reputation for being a happy, friendly and caring Catholic school which embraces the Gospel message and provides extremely well for our pupils’ welfare as well as providing a good education. Relationships between home and school are positive and effective which helps to ensure every child makes expected progress in school. We are a designated Specialist Arts College in music, art and drama which enables us to build on the many strengths which already exist in our arts provision.
