What The Good Schools Guide say about us:
An ease and harmony exists between students despite their varying needs and previous school experiences. One parent also highlighted this saying, 'children know each other’s problems - they’re in a bubble and it’s nice bubble to be in.’ We met an engaging group of students from across several year groups, and were struck by how confident and reflective they were about their own journeys.
