Internally the building is on two levels, ground floor and first floor. We have excellent facilities including an ICT suite, a library, two halls, a music room, a Design Technology room, a community room and a kitchen where hot school meals are cooked on site.
We are located within easy walking distance of Rayners Lane tube station and its amenities.
