With 41 different languages spoken, strong pupil representation from most world faiths and over 76% of our pupils from different ethnic groups, it is such a credit to our entire school community that everyone works together, with pupils, staff and parents showing outstanding relationships to improve the life chances for each child. Our governors and all staff are delighted that their commitment to our schools mission, aims and values are so evident through our delightful, confident and articulate pupils.
