“Unique. A relaxed, yet focused atmosphere unlike any we have encountered elsewhere.” The Good Schools Guide.
Peace of mind. This is a message that goes straight to the heart of who we are and what we deliver as a school.
For our pupils, peace of mind comes from being in an environment where their ideas and thinking are not only celebrated, but matter. Where they understand their own definition of success. Where creativity, academic success and spiritual well-being walk hand-in-hand.
For parents, peace of mind is knowing that their child is in a vibrant atmosphere of inclusivity and focus. That they will be encouraged to be confident, 360 degree thinkers, ready to meet life’s challenges.
I hope you will join one of our school tours or Open Days so you can experience what sets us apart and see the many ways in which your child will thrive here. Please contact Mrs Martha Carslake, the School Registrar, for more details.
We look forward to meeting you.

👨🏽🎨Artist of the Week👩🏻🎨 11/11/19 - 15/11/19 Egyptian Papyrus Paintings Similar to the ancient Egyptians, Y3 have been drawing and painting on paper made from the papyrus plant. In the manner of ‘Egyptian Wall Paintings’ they have been carefully depicting accurate representations of daily life from this rich civilization. Deep and Allegra’s papyrus paintings really stood out and contain beautifully detailed hieroglyphics. . . . .
👩🏽🎨Artist of the Week👩🏻🎨 4/11/19 - 8/11/19 Y1 have been exploring the colour green - mixing various shades and intensities in palettes as proper artists do! And what better way to study green than pay homage to Henri Rousseau’s magnificent jungle scene titled “Surprised” (1891). Iman and Salila made some delightful interpretations of a tiger ready to pounce in a lush green background. . . . . .
