Our Junior School
We are a large three form entry school however we have a small school feel which you will notice when you walk into the school. Although we have over three hundred children in our junior school, we all know each other. We are a supportive school who ensures that we deliver excellent teaching, a creative and exciting curriculum and continuous and individual pastoral support.
We are situated in an urban area but are very proud of our outdoor swimming pool and our wonderful grounds that we use for a variety of sports and other learning opportunities. We run a variety of clubs during and after school. In addition to providing our children with lots of sporting opportunities, every child within our school is involved in learning a musical instrument. Our choir has performed in the Hexagon, Anvil and in musical competitions. Our Steel Pan Orchestra has also performed in a number of concerts including the Royal Albert Hall. In a National Music For Youth Competition our panners were selected for the finals and will soon be travelling to Birmingham to perform.
