We are proud to be a school across two separate sites, with one school ethos. The Infant school site (Maidenwell Avenue) caters for children from Nursery to Year 2 and our Junior school site (Mundesley Road) serves our Year 3-6 children.


If school has received your application and the relevant forms they will be in touch by the end of February to advise on your child’s status for intake.

Thank you for your interest in our school.
