We are a small independent school in Essex founded by a group of parents and friends in 1989 to provide a Christian education, fostering Christian faith and values. Today the school includes families from a wide geographical area, who belong to a number of different churches.
The school caters for children from 3 through to 16 years of age. Small numbers in classes mean that every child receives a high level of attention and individual encouragement to do their best.
Our ethos encourages a real sense of community and the family nature of the school means that children can be themselves in a safe and accepting environment where pupils and staff work together. Our overall aim is to provide a Christ centred education that enables children and young people to become confident, creative, aware and responsible members of their communities.
