We are a happy, vibrant two form primary school not far from the centre of Dorking, with 420 children from Reception to Year 6. We are fortunate to have a great, enthusiastic and dynamic team of staff who are passionate about learning and helping children to flourish. We have high expectations for one another and have a caring, inclusive philosophy.
We are a Church of England school and our vision: Inspiring Learning, Nurturing Wholeness shapes and motivates all we do, driving all of our actions. We want the very best for every child – we want to offer them rich and inspiring opportunities to enable them to learn to their full potential in a way that nurtures them fully and develops them as a whole person; emotionally, socially, academically and spiritually. Our six school values: Compassion, Hope, Perseverance, Respect, Trust and Wisdom are central to and at the heart of the way we learn and relate to one another.
Our children love learning and are keen and motivated to push themselves to be the very best they can be. We have a thriving breakfast club and on site after school and holiday provision from our independent provider Action House, and our families really value this.
We warmly welcome visitors and have a very active parent body who enthusiastically support all aspects of school life.
