  • High aspirations of a culture of continuous improvement.
  • Commitment to creativity and innovation in the pursuit of excellence for all its pupils.

Our value for the Month of November is Friendship 

This month’s artwork is by Indian artist Jiaur Rahman.  It is one of a series of paintings entitled ‘Friendship’. Jiaur Rahman’s painting shows the spirit of friendship in a very colourful way. The contrast of the background in a brick red with the bright yellow and blue worn by the children is very powerful.

Friendship quotes; poets unknown:


Fight for you
Respect you
Include you
Encourage you
Need you
Deserve you
Stand by you

Friendship isn’t how you forget but how you forgive. Not how you listen but how you understand. Not how you see but how you feel. Not how you let go but how you hold on.
