Our school is nestled into a green hillside, close to Selsdon Woods, which is an ancient woodland and nature reserve. We are surrounded by the leafy and pleasant Forestdale Estate, yet close to all of Croydon’s many amenities via the tram system.
We believe in strong partnership with parents/carers in order to help each child reach their potential, both academically and personally. Our main focus is on the skills of literacy and numeracy which underpin all learning, and we are proud to have achieved The Basic Skills Quality Mark for the 4th time.
We use our beautiful grounds and local woods to enhance and enrich our curriculum. We harness the new technologies so that our virtual school is open anywhere, anytime. Each child can log-in and access learning in a safe environment while their parent/carer can access most school information.
We extend our school day because we want to support working parents and we have a super range of clubs which run until 4.30pm/5pm, allowing children to develop new interests and skills.
The “Treehouse” – our Enhanced Learning Provision supports pupils with Autism Spectrum Disorder and further information can be found under the “School Information” tab.
I hope a tour around our website will give you a taste of our wonderful and unique school.
I am proud to be the Headteacher of this wonderful school.
