A message from our Principal

We are committed to offering children an exciting and creative curriculum, where learning is enjoyable and meets the needs of our children. As well as developing their key skills and feelings of safety and security, we want to develop and nurture children’s talents. As part of this we give children experiences outside of school through a growing programme of visits and experiences. As a small school, our staff know our children and families personally. We passionately care about the children in our school and are committed to giving them the best education we can.

A message from our Executive Principal


I am the Executive Principal of the federation of Kings Rise, Rough Hay and Croft Academies.

I am delighted to be able to tell you that all 3 academies made progress and continued to improve from the previous year. I am committed to continue this improvement and improve outcomes for the children and families across the federation.

Last year, the number of children who achieved the expected Level 4 at the end of Year 6 increased by 13%. More than 80% of our children make good or better progress in Key Stage 2.

Congratulations to all children, parents, staff and governors!
