Our Practice

We believe that these aims will be best fulfilled by encouraging everyone to strive to do their best and by having high expectations of achievement; by the quality and commitment of our teaching staff and Governors and by the partnership, which we initiate and encourage with parents. We stress traditional values in all aspects of school life. We place a strong emphasis on the acquisition of basic skills within a forward-looking practical approach based on learning through doing.
