Finance

Our core mission is to equip all our pupils to be able to live life to the full. Our purpose is education; we are a learning community.

However, we recognise that education itself is a business. We have a responsibility to run our schools efficiently so that precious resources can be channelled to where they can make a real difference: in the classroom!

We take finances seriously because they underpin teaching and learning.
