Our Achievements
 
Academic

We strive for high attainment and excellent progress for all our children at each key stage.  We believe this is achieved by high quality teaching, exciting learning opportunities and high expectations of all learners. 

 

Look at our  2017 Performance Tables produced by the Department for Education showing data about our performance at the end of KS2 (Year 6). 

 

Ofsted recognised our academic attainment as excellent in our Outstanding Ofsted inspection in October 2010 and January 2015. Click here to read our latest Ofsted Report.

Non-Academic

We believe that test results are only one indicator of a school's educational success.  We are equally proud of our achievements in Technology, Art, Music, Drama, Dance and P.E.  Each year we compete in the Croydon Netball and Football Leagues, and Swimming and Athletics competitions to allow children to access competitive sporting activities. The children also enjoy taking part in the KS1 and KS2 Dance Festival at Fairfield Halls in Croydon.
