We were judged to be a 'good' school by Ofsted in January 2014 and, during our latest SIAMS (Church School) Inspection in January 2016, we were also judged to be 'good'.
We have achieved the Healthy Schools Award, the International Schools Award and the Primary Science Quality Award (Silver Level) in recognition of our achievements in these areas. We are now working towards the 360 Degrees Mark for E-Safety.
