Our pupils have access to a broad and balanced curriculum adapted to meet the needs of each individual. In addition to gaining language, literacy, numeracy, scientific, technological, artistic and physical skills, our aim is for your child to build confidence and self esteem. We aim for our pupils to make decisions and develop the ability to express feelings and ideas in preparation for adult life.

We also attach great importance to the social and moral development of pupils, and seek to enable them to build purposeful relationships with other children and adults, and to be sensitive to the feelings and needs of others. We work hard to ensure that all pupils feel valued, good about themselves and acquire a high level of self-esteem.
