Our children are well supported, challenged and inspired by our excellent staff, who aim to provide an extraordinary education that brings out the best in all of our young people, regardless of their ability or background. By being a part of Extend Learning Academies Network we work very closely together with our other schools across the area. This collaboration provides access to a variety of sports, cultural and arts events. We feel our offer of an enhanced curriculum is of a great benefit to all our children.

Being situated in the centre of a seaside town, we are in close proximity to the beach, local parks, library, the museum and the theatre. This facilitates the opportunities for our children to enjoy wider learning experiences.
