Well done to our amazing Year 6 children from 2016-17 who achieved some great results in their end of year SATs. We achieved 62% combined which is above the 61% national average and our Reading has once again beaten the national average. Our Writing and Grammar results were also an improvement on last year's school results. Well done everyone!
We hope our last year's Year 6 pupils are settling in to their new High School - please come and vist!
‘good’ overall and ‘outstanding’ for personal development, behaviour and welfare.
‘striving for the best is the ambition of all.'
