There is a warm, fun, positive atmosphere in our school, daily interactions are guided by our core values of kindness, respect, empathy, hard work, participation, curiosity, creativity, democracy and community.

We work together to provide a rich variety of co- and extra-curricular engagements to give students the opportunity to reach their potential socially, creatively and ethically. We are passionate about student voice and leadership, languages, sports, drama, art, music, STEM, equality, diversity and climate and sustainability. We particularly enjoy whole school events where all students and staff come together to celebrate, fundraise, showcase, share and learn.
