Our curriculum is enriched with whole school special events such as Science week, science fairs, curriculum topic ‘WOW’ days and days to celebrate diversity such as Diwali, Chinese New Year, World Cup and international schools. This promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Extra-curricular activities are organised both in and out of school. An overnight residential experience is offered to a group of pupils in the summer term. As well as this an annual trip to a pantomime is carried out by The Rotary Club. We also invite musicians, scientists, storytellers and theatre groups into school.
