All children from ages rising 3 -13 years enjoy an atmosphere in which each can fulfil their own potential both academically and socially.

Children are given a solid grounding in literacy and numeracy through access to a well-balanced curriculum; are encouraged to become confident, considerate and courteous members of their community.

The School is boasting a new Lower School with spacious classrooms, playground and all the facilities young children need. In addition a superbly equipped new Art facility has just been opened for the benefit of all the children in the school from year 3 upwards. Two state of the art IT suites are a recent addition to the facilities of the school for the teaching of ICT and also for use in other areas of the curriculum.

Extensive playing fields give ample room for all major sports including golf. All weather netball/tennis courts and heated swimming pool are complemented by a purpose built Sports Hall which provides badminton, cricket nets, five a side football, gymnastics and a galaxy of other indoor activities.
