In September 2012 the school converted to academy status - an exciting change in the history of the school. Prior to this, all government funding for the school came through B&NES Council.  As an academy that funding now comes from the government direct to the school and the school is able to manage that funding to ensure the very best education continues to be offered to children who learn here.  

The academy trust has a board of directors (also known as governors).  Our current directors are listed on the Governors page which may be accessed by clicking here.
