About Our School

In January 1999 The Rt. Hon. John Prescott MP opened the United Kingdom’s first PFI school on Victoria Dock. Such was its popularity that a further two extensions followed in 2001 and 2003, to complete this 240 place Primary School. Another extension opened in 2016 taking the school to 420 places.

The building is owned and maintained to the highest standard by The Sewell Group. The school flourishes in this excellent learning environment where the child is at the heart of the process.

Together the Headteacher, staff and governors have created a centre of educational excellence.

Extra-curricular opportunities are ripe with numerous sports, crafts and skills being developed. The children take part in competitions against other schools in table tennis, rounders, netball and badminton as well as many others. Extensive links with local organisations support the sport in Key Stages One and Two.

Safe and supportive, our school is proud of its Healthy Schools Award. Through fitness; healthy eating; pastoral care; inclusivity; and safe practices, our children are happy to live and learn together in a multi-cultural community where diversity is celebrated. The school was highly commended during its assessment for the ‘Rights Respecting School Award’.. The school has held ‘Investors in People’ status since April 2006 (Gold standard achieved in April 2015).
