Our vision for the future
This vision statement was written after extensive consultation with pupils, parents/carers and staff. It is our vision for where the school aims to be by 2010. We are already well on the way! The vision was updated in 2007 to reflect awareness of environmental issues and our ambition to make IT a fundamental part of school life.
