Meet the Senior Leadership Team

The school's Senior Leadership team is made up of the headteacher, deputy headteacher and four assistant headteachers.

Each year group has a member of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) attached to it.  If you have a concern that cannot be dealt with by your child's class teaher or year group Team Leader, then it will be dealt with by the SLT link for that year group
