Welcome to our school

  Growing faith, challenging minds, discovering talents

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."

Proverbs 22:6

Through God's love and Jesus' teachings we will enable our whole school community to flourish by developing knowledge, skills and understanding; nurturing positive attitudes to the future and recognising the difference we can make to the lives of others.

The school became an academy with the Diocese of Leicester Academies Trust (DLAT) on 1st October 2014.
