"The highly effective and exceptional leadership and vision of the executive headteacher, head of school and governing body have brought about significant improvements in the quality of teaching, pupils’ achievement and their behaviour since the previous inspection so that these are now outstanding...Governance is a strength of the school’s outstanding leadership. The range of governors’ expertise, skills and knowledge of the school is excellent.

Millennium Governors’ Strategic Vision

We prepare children for the next stage in their lives by focusing on...

Our Key Principles:

  • Independence
  • Collaborative learning
  • Risk-taking
  • Self-belief
  • Communication skills
  • Academic achievement
  • Strong leadership (including governors), outstanding teachers and a dynamic learning environment are the keys to brilliant outcomes for our children.
  • All children are expected to make at least good progress no matter what their starting points. Children must make an effort to do their best in every area.
  • We expect a calm and industrious environment with an emphasis on respect and manners.
  • Teaching encompasses a cross-curricular, project-driven approach that reflects and embraces our diverse community.
  • Children are prepared for the future with an innovative curriculum that develops entrepreneurial and problem-solving skills and boosts creativity and adaptability. We want our leaders, teachers, and students to think outside the box.
