Our Vision

To provide a safe and inclusive environment which enables high quality learning and teaching. To prepare children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Through the development of creative thinking we hope to encourage children to make positive decisions in their life. The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team.


We are pleased to welcome you to our departmental website. We are a department of 3 members of staff with ambitious plans to provide a creative working environment for pupils of all ages and abilities.
