Our Team

"Teaching is outstanding because adults who work with pupils know their individual needs remarkably well. Teachers are highly skilled and adapt activities so that pupils achieve extremely well." ... "Staff demonstrate the highest levels of care and commitment to pupils. They expertly manage each pupil’s needs" ... "Staff morale is high. Staff, including those new to the school, speak highly of school leaders and the high-quality training they receive." - Ofsted
