The Primary School and the Dutch stream share the main Primary building, housing 21 classrooms, a library resource centre and additional Learning Support bases.

The school is now seeking an experienced Head of Primary who can demonstrate the ability to develop a shared vision, which inspires and motivates pupils, staff and all other members of the school’s communities.
