But we do not work alone. Parents and carers are our partners, and we work closely with them to achieve the best for their children.

The academy offers a creative and innovative curriculum to excite and engage all pupils. It has a published admissions number of 60 and a total capacity of 420 pupils, although there is currently an additional ‘bulge’ year group moving up through the academy. The academy also hosts a nursery for children aged from 3 years.
