Aims of the School

  • to prepare children for their place in society.
  • to provide a rich and safe environment conducive to learning where children can develop socially, academically, physically and spiritually.
  • to provide opportunities for learning within the framework of a well planned and creative curriculum.
  • to provide quality learning which will allow each child to develop both personally and academically to his or her full potential.
  • to emphasise the development of mathematics, language and reading, since without a thorough grounding in these basic areas, children often encounter difficulties in other subjects.
  • to provide a warm and friendly school atmosphere in which children are encouraged to be well mannered and considerate of others.
  • to encourage children to develop self-control, self-esteem, honesty, reliability and independence.

We sing a wide variety of songs and the emphasis is always on having fun. We have performed at a wide variety of venues throughout the North East. Read more about it here.
