Our School    


We are an infant school providing education for children aged 4+ to 6+  We serve parts of the Ecclesall, Millhouses and Whirlow areas of southwest Sheffield.                  

Our main building is an adapted open-plan design with nine classes, 7 of these are in the main building, while 2 of the Year 1 classes are taught in the mobile classrooms at the rear of the school. We have a large hall and a library. 

All classrooms and the hall have an electronic whiteboard. We also have a new "Hub" which is used for community and parental events, training and hiring out.

The school has its own kitchen and meals are cooked on the premises.  Children have lunch in the school hall.
