Collingwood School and Media Arts College is a very special place

At our school we aim to provide a caring, supportive and inclusive environment, which has high expectations and values all members within the school community. We respect the needs and aspirations of all individuals and provide opportunities for all pupils to make the best possible progress and attain the highest personal achievements.

The school has a tradition of being a caring and friendly environment for children; this ethos stems from the high calibre and commitment of staff and governors where we encourage all children to be enthusiastic and committed learners who aim to develop their confidence, capacity to learn and work independently and collaboratively.
