  • Mrs Sue Elliott BA Hons (QTS), CEPQH - Headteacher

    A pupil once asked me 'what makes you laugh?' my reply was simple 'you do' … well not 'you' so much as children! I am very lucky to be the Headteacher of a school where there is so much to smile and be happy about. I am passionate about developing the whole child and giving them the right environment to flourish and grow both academically and spiritually.
