Our school, situated in the heart of Portobello Road, is a stimulating, diverse and friendly place that is dedicated to the success of our children. Our staff and governors work together to ensure our pupils make outstanding progress and attain high standards.

We have strong partnerships between our parents and community. This enables us to create a special and unique educational experience as soon as your child starts with us.

Your child will find an organised community, in a safe setting, that fosters scope for intellectual, emotional, physical, social and moral development. In our caring and intellectually stimulating environment, we always offer praise and encouragement. We have high expectations of achievement and behaviour, so that all may thrive and enjoy their days in our school.
