Preparing for Life in Modern Britain

We are a broadly Christian school, promoting tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles through direct and indirect teaching of 'Community & Cultures'. This links directly with our teaching and support of British Values - pupils learn about and interact in our school and local community, and extend their learning/skills/knowledge to communities in Britain and around the world, to prepare them positively for a life in modern Britain (please see our website tab 'Welcome: British Values').
