We have a newly installed fully floodlit 3G Pitch available at . Get in touch to view the facility or booked in!


Congratulations to Mohammed Begi who has just been accepted at Oxford University to read History and Politics. Seriously proud of you.


We are very excited about our trip to tomorrow. Pupils will be writing short stories inspired by an exhibition of Charles II’s original artwork. We are grateful to for their support.


The on-site nursery is privately run by an outstanding provider and took a year to set up. Only started in Sept, for community as well as staff who get a reduced rate. Happy to discuss details - email the Principal through our website.


Agreed - we have a nursery on site... one of the best decisions we've made. Plus we give new fathers two weeks paternity instead of the usual one - supporting dads important too :)


Want to join a school with fantastic staff morale, great training and a healthy life/work balance? We're looking for an MFL teacher and a Science teacher for Sept.

The VLF SID  (Very Low Frequency Sporadic Ionospheric Event Detector) radio telescope is designed to monitor X-ray flares emitted by the Sun. These

flares can cause significant problems in that they can disrupt satellites, aircraft and ground computers and even, in extreme cases, ground power grids.


The flares are detected by their influence on the ionosphere and the consequent increase in signal strength from remote low frequency stations. The x-ray flare on meeting the ionosphere in the atmosphere causes the atoms in the atmosphere to become charged, by removing electrons. This enables the ionosphere to reflect very low frequency radio signals (we monitor signals from naval submarine navigation stations) more effectively. The stations we monitor are from across the world.


The antenna is a 1/300 wave loop monitored by a computer running a spectrum analyser programme. We can recognise a SID as it shows as a 'shark's fin' trace on the computer.
