Take a look at our school

Our school entrance.

This is where you will find the school office.  Your child will not enter through this door unless they are attending Nursery afternoon sessions. Your child will enter through the Nursery or Reception door depending on your year group. Please go onto the school yard and make your way around the back of the school to find the Nursery and Reception entrances.
