Key Stage 2 is a phase of primary education for pupils aged 7 to 11 in England and Wales. Our teachers are very experienced and most have been at the school for a number of years.

In the Foundation Phase, play is an important aspect of the school day. At this stage, children learn through doing. Outdoor areas have been set up around the school grounds and pupils are taken outside regularly, either locally or further afield, to gain first hand experiences.
