Pupils on roll - 101

The school is located in the picturesque village of Garth. We have the privilege of overlooking far reaching views, which are forever changing with the seasons. Due to the location we are able to use our environment to conduct a variety of outdoor curricular and extra-curricular activities, Pupils are involved in the Healthy Schools project and have won many awards, which have enabled us to develop the school site to include many challenging physical and mental development activities.
