Our School

Our APPS vision is to ‘Inspire a love for lifelong learning’ through our aims of ‘Achieving Potential Producing Success’ (APPS).

Our shared mission is to develop well-rounded, confident and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential. We will do this by providing consistently high quality teaching in a welcoming, happy, safe and supportive learning environment in which everyone is equal and all achievements are celebrated.

"The school has high expectations of pupils. The motto of 'Achieving Potential, Producing Success' is understood and used by pupils across the school.

They are proud to be part of the school and recognise the high expectations the school has for them.

They live up to these expectations, demonstrating the school values in how they behave and also in their learning.

Pupils love the different subjects they learn.

Consequently, all pupils achieve well."
