Why Choose Us?

Visit us virtually in 2020-21

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are currently not organising open mornings for prospective parents this year.  This is to safeguard the school community and reduce the potential risk of transmission of the virus.  However, we were still keen to share with you what our school is really like, and so asked some of our year 6 pupils to work with the headteacher to produce a “virtual open morning“.  It was a particularly steep learning curve for the headteacher.

Please click the link below to see the 11 minute video made by our pupils.  When asked to be critical about the finished product and what would make it even better, they said it would be perfect if it included a “blooper reel”, so that is attached separately here.
