“Ambitious young minds are the future leaders of our community”

We are a ‘good school’ (OFSTED June 2018)

“…where the senior leadership team and Governors work well together.  Pupils are polite and well mannered.  They are considerate and show respect to one another and staff.”

We want a dynamic, highly-motivated and inspirational, creative and committed individual to lead and manage our highly-respected school.

We offer a vibrant, happy, friendly, welcoming school and community with an outstanding, caring ethos, children who are committed, enthusiastic and fully engaged in their learning, a driven and determined leadership team with committed staff and a supportive and active Governing Body.
