To Inspire, Enable, and Educate - 'For Life in all its Fullness'

Our Collective Worship centres around our Christian vision To Inspire, Enable and Educate for ‘Life in all its Fullness’ John 10:10 and cohesively combines a wide number of aspects spread throughout the academic year, to ensure the personal development of each child. Our Family Group sessions aim to explore spirituality with the shared understanding that Spirituality is a source of creativity open to us all. It makes us feel alive, by encouraging us to ask questions about our world through a Global Dimensions focus – a thread running through all our lives and beyond.
