Life here is NOT just a series of lessons. Our very special environment and weekly events play a key part in giving children endless learning opportunities. Pupils develop a passion for life and a level of happiness that accelerates their learning. Here is a quick flavour of life in our world:
We are not just a school! Our Arts Hub, housed in our theatre and studios, provides opportunity for children to join subsidised classes in dance and drama. At the weekend we run our Go Stars football club. All pupils stay an extra evening in school to join our I Shine University and they can join our I Shine Clubs and academies. We also have our own I Shine catering and cleaning services and "One Kind Learning" productions which you can see on our You tube channel
Our children are amazing! My staff and I are proud to serve them and their families by providing a very special primary school experience.
We are here them and for you!
