We are a large federation and have over 500 children on roll across both schools. Our staff work seamlessly together, as if we were a ‘primary’, to maximise capacity of improvement and a real consistency in what we provide as our children transition throughout the key stages.

Community, Opportunity, Achievement – ‘Standing together with our community to unlock opportunity and secure achievement for all.’

We are seeking an inspirational, exceptional, highly driven teacher and leader to join our team and community. Our children absolutely deserve the best opportunities, which will lead to them achieving great outcomes in everything that they do.
