This unique location allows our students and staff to benefit from both cultural and academic opportunities.

At our school, we take pride in providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere, as highlighted in our recent Ofsted report.

We are particularly proud of our whole school Literacy programme, which emphasizes the development of strong reading, writing, and communication skills across all subjects.
