    To enable your child to flourish here, we’ll carry out an interview assessment before they start with us.

We also have an excellent special educational needs (SEN) department, which supports children with additional needs.

We currently operate four bus routes from these areas to our school, and are adding new services all the time, based on demand. Please get in touch with our admissions team to find out more.

  • What curricula will my child follow?
