Mr Mathew Sims Head Teacher


" This is a great day of celebration for the school community and I am delighted that the Minister has visited our school today.

We are privileged to have the new Technology and Art facilities with the latest educational resources and are very grateful to all those involved in the delivery of this project."


Thank you to all staff and pupils who left a lasting and positive impression of the school on our visitors.


In whatever capacity you contributed, be it organising, running an activity to incidental conversations in the corridor, visitors were bowled over with the school and the improvements we have made.


As always our pupils were the stars of the show, they were engaging, enthusiastic, funny, and were commended on their high level of conduct.


I was very proud to be the Head Teacher of our school!



Thanks again for your continued hard work and efforts.



Mathew Sims 
Head Teacher
