Notable Academic Facilities

86% of our pupils passed either the 11+ or selective entry tests in the last academic year (2020-2021) - something we are truly proud of since much of their learning was at home due to COVID restrictions.

Wellbeing & Pastoral Care

A fundamental part of our school is our wellbeing and pastoral care focus. Mental health has fortunately become as important as physical health and our team which includes a trained NHS paediatric nurse provide a high level of care for all our pupils. A dedicated wellbeing room and an outside tranquillity area are there as spaces for children to go if they need support. Various clubs are put on for different year groups to teach them about relaxation, how to deal with feelings and express themselves, and exam pressure for the 11+ exam. We also have dedicated SENDco support for children struggling academically as well as emotionally.
