We are a happy and caring school where team work is a real strength this was noted by Ofsted in October 2018 and confirmed in the SIAMS inspection of 2020. We enjoy teaching a dynamic and vibrant curriculum and the school is very well resourced, particularly with our outdoor facilities. We are close to the city centre as well as Avenham and Miller Parks in Preston.

We are committed to accessing high quality continuous professional development, have a caring and supportive governing body and leadership team and enthusiastic, well behaved pupils. Our school is diverse in language, faith and culture and we are a happy school community.
