Our number on roll is set to increase yearly until we reach our 750 capacity.  Our students come from diverse backgrounds and we value the inclusive nature of our school community. We also have an ASC (Autistic Spectrum Condition) Unit in purpose built accommodation.  Our School is a vibrant school, where all are encouraged to be expressive, creative and enjoy their learning in a positive atmosphere.  Our School is an inclusive school, where all are valued and thrive in a safe, caring and supportive environment. We welcome everyone to our diverse community and encourage friendly and mutually respectful relationships.  Our school is a proud school, where all aspire to be successful in whatever they do.
