 SIAMS is a Statuory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools.

I am delighted we have been graded Good in both the overall judgement  and the additional Judgement for the impact of Christian worship.

The report states   'A powerful commitment to the nurture of all pupils and their families lies at the heart of this school community. The school's vision springs from an understanding of God as love and a desire to express that love in making every effort to set each pupil 'on a positive path for life.'
