Creating a community with open hearts and open minds

Our vision

Creating a community with open hearts and open minds

As an inclusive and welcoming church school, we work towards creating a community with open hearts and open minds. We strive to ensure that all members of our school community understand themselves to be valued for who they are.

Our inspiring and ambitious learning environment enables pupils and adults to aspire to fulfil their hopes for the future. Through challenge and support, we help each other overcome barriers so that everyone can feel confident in pursuing excellence in all they do.


“A caring, understanding, honest, and broad minded ethos that acknowledges and supports individuality.”
