It's our Harvest Festival today and we are thrilled to welcome our parent community to celebrate. Our Kindergarten and Willow Class went to our allotment last week to harvest the corn and pumpkins that they planted in the spring; it was wonderful to see the joy on their faces.

We are a vibrant community of expert practitioners, pupils and parents, offering a progressive holistic educational approach to prepare our children for purposeful and fulfilling lives and enable them to become highly contributing members of society.
At the core of our practice we recognise that childhood is a magical time to be cherished and protected which is why we provide our children with educational adventures every day that inspire wonder and help them discover and embrace their full emotional, physical, intellectual and creative potential.
Today, our provision is for children aged 3-11; offering a kindergarten(nursery) and Primary School. In future we hope to extend this further to a middle and high school.
We offer our unique educational model as a beacon of best practice and inspiration to educators and legislators with the hope that, one day, this child-centred and progressive approach will represent the norm.
