The layout of the School is on two levels.  On the ground floor there is an entrance foyer and office, two classrooms, hall, resource room and kitchen.  On the first floor, there are two further classrooms, a computer suite and library.  The staffroom and Headteacher's office are also on the first floor.

  • To develop children's personal responsibility, social skills and cultural awareness within the school community and in the wider context of local, national and world issues.
