Each child is treated as an individual, with individual needs and abilities, and everyone is encouraged to try to achieve their best and to have high aspirations.

Our schools enable children to become self-confident and resourceful individuals, with a broad and varied skill set, in readiness for the next step of their schooling journey.

The schools share the same vision, values and ethos, which are nurtured in our small school environment.
