Through teaching the British National Curriculum we hope to instill a love of learning in a happy, stimulating environment which inspires, challenges, and encourages independence; where daughter feel able to take risks and learn from her experiences.

These experiences are delivered through a ‘creative curriculum’ where there is a very clear educational purpose, lessons are imaginative and progress is measured in order to inform the next stage of your child’s learning. Our students' needs drive the learning that takes place and we pride ourselves on ensuring that we know our learners and therefore can meet their needs.
