We are proud to have a team of well-qualified teachers, classroom assistants and support staff, all of whom work closely with one another to provide and support the children’s learning. All staff at our school recognise that each child has their own special talent, which we assist in promoting and nurturing; while working to ensure that the education of each child develops in personal, social, academic and spiritual dimensions.

Each class has its own form teacher; specialist teachers take the children for a variety of subjects, including Art, Music, Spanish, Science, Drama and PE. Class numbers are small which allows each pupil to receive individual help and attention.
