Welcome to our facilities and grounds

Here's a selection of photos to give you an insight into how our school environment enhances our daily school life. We have a warm and welcoming interior and a lovely outdoor setting that provides opportunities galore for exploring, learning and having fun.

All our facilities are available to hire at very reasonable rates.

We are lucky to have our own swimming pool on site. This means no time or money is wasted in travelling to lessons at the public pool.

Endless choice for all types of play, supported by thoughtful playground art, challenging climbing frames and the provision of sheltered areas such as the beach hut and the ark. We have a "Playpod" which is full of resources for imaginative play and a "Huff 'n' Puff" shed that gives the children access to games equipment. There are separate, well-furnished play areas for younger pupils.

EYFS area

The Bug Room: we have created a room that is very different from other areas of the school. This is a quiet, calm, sensory room for our youngest children. We have a dark corner where the children can play with the light table, mood egg or simply snuggle up on cosy blankets and look at the stars and fish in the amazing bubble lamp. There is also a comfy corner with sensory blankets, seats and a range of exciting resources for the children to play with. As you can see from the photos the room is a big hit with the children.
