It recognises the cognitive and social benefits that multilingualism brings to individuals. This offer is relatively new in the UK and the school is proud to be one of a few schools at the forefront of the drive for the development of bilingual (English/Spanish) education in this country. 

The school has high aspirations for all the children and their achievements are visible and celebrated. The broader curriculum offers a rich and stimulating learning environment in which each child can grow, develop and reach their full potential.
