As a school we are proud to be over 150 years old and we are focussed on being a school that serves our community in the best way possible. We actively encourage you, as our community, to become involved in the school and to be partners in your child’s learning and to celebrate the successes of this always.We aspire to provide your children with a modern learning environment, with up to date teaching and learning resources and a staff that is dedicated and looks to model the values on which our school is based.


Our school motto, ‘Our Best Always’ is at the heart of our school. These words represent our wish that each individual child strives to achieve to be the best they can be. We aim to teach, support and nurture your child mentally, physically, culturally and spiritually.

We look forward to meeting you and working with you to provide the best possible educational experience for you and your children.
