You will also join us at a very exciting time. We are currently undergoing expansion work and will increase from a 3 form to 4 form entry from September 2020. 

The school has also been graded as ‘Good’ in our last 2 Ofsted inspections (most recently in June 2018). They said: 

The school has a strong culture of care. Pupils are extremely polite and well behaved. In lessons, they are engaged in their learning and listen to one another respectfully.'


If you think that you have the experience, energy, enthusiasm and skills to fit into our continually improving school, applications can be submitted online.
