Church inspection - we are a Good school!We had a very good Church inspection in November 2014 when we came out as a 'Good' church school overall. We were particularly pleased to have gained 'Outstanding' for our distinctiveness as a Church of England school. The report can be found in Parent Information/Official Information.
