I moved my daughter here in year 3 as she was struggling in our local primary. She has had a wonderful turn around for her in every way; she has developed so much thanks to the nurturing , consistent, excellent teaching. The new head is totally dedicated and ambitious and the school is thriving and growing under his leadership.
