I hold a deep belief that children are at their best when they feel safe, happy and are inspired to try their very best every day.

Early Years

3-5 Years

Our Early Years curriculum ensures that your child’s academic potential is fulfilled but we go well beyond this; we inspire, motivate, nurture and care so that you know your child will have the opportunity to grow and prosper in an engaging, vibrant and supportive learning environment.

Early Years

Prep School

4-11 Years

All children can learn to thrive, regardless of early learning ability. Great minds think for themselves; nurturing individuality is at the heart of our teaching. We believe tailor-made teaching opens up young minds to endless possibilities, encouraging them to think creatively and form their own ideas.
