The school’s ethos of combining an enriching curriculum with family orientated care makes the school a warm and engaging place to work and learn.
In September 2017, the school embarked on an exciting phase of its development, as it moved to a new, purpose-built campus located in the city. These premises provide first-class educational facilities for all ages and subject areas.
