Choosing a school for your child is a huge step. We hope that our website provides an insight into what we provide for the children in our school. but there is no substitute for coming to have a look around. We are able to offer school tours for prospective parents and children in a Covid-secure manner, so if you would like to come and visit, please phone the school office (01404 548700) for more information. 


Our Reception children are supported by a caring, experienced Early Teams who are committed to helping children learn through play. We have a purpose-built Early Years building, with bright, spacious classrooms that have direct access to our amazing outdoor space. We have a mud kitchen, a water play zone, a large construction area, a sensory space, and even a climbing frame! We are also lucky enough to have our own school woods, which our Reception children visit at least once a week to explore and learn through forest school-style activities. 


The journey begins here...
