Pupil thoughts

Aerial footage

We created this video tour for our new Reception children who were unable to visit the school as part of normal transitions. Since we moved on and we are able to see our lovely new potential pupils face to face, this is not a great neccesity anymore. Saying that, some parents commented on how they enjoyed watching this and that it gave a good insight into our school. We hope it gives a flavour of our school – personal tours on Tuesdays can be booked through our admin team with the headteacher.

We think our school is great, but don’t just take our word for it – listen to our fabulous Year 6 who told us why they have loved coming to our school.

(Please note that this is a large file to download, so Wi-Fi is recommended for downloading)

We are very lucky to have a parent who can professionally fly drones, so he was able to take footage of our school and its grounds from another perspective – enjoy!

To watch the films at their best quality, please download the file to your device – streaming the videos will play them at a much lower quality.
