The story of our new school building

We were proud and excited to move into our brand new building in September 2018.  During the 17-18 school year, we documented the build through videos and blogs.  A selection of these can be found below.


Phases 1 and 2 are now complete.  Our schools fields were seeded in March 2019 and are due to be ready for use in March 2020.  Due to the high number of children currently in our school, EYFS (Nursery and Reception) children are housed in Lower School. Renovations are currently taking place in this building.    

Where has the Upper School gone?
