Newly appointed headteacher Jenna Potter said: “We are really proud of our school and its traditions which stretch back to 1372. We are at the forefront of current educational practice and prepare our students for the future. Despite our apparent size, we are a close family and know our children very well.

“We challenge them on the things they find difficult so they become resilient, support their dreams and enable them to succeed.”
