Mr Rob Browning

Headteacher

We are pleased to announce that we have become the District's Coordinating School for a fantastic, county wide literacy initiative.
 
The 'We are Reading' program is an initiative designed to increase the enjoyment of reading, improve the standards of reading, further in-bed reading throughout the whole curriculum and encourage our students and staff to partake in reading at every opportunity.
 
We are passionate about literacy and we recognise the benefits of literacy,  especially the impact reading can have on learning.
