Head of 6th's Welcome

Firmly established over many years, Sheldon's excellent reputation is well-deserved. It is a purposeful learning community where every individual counts.

Expectations and aspirations are high here and we are committed to developing the young people in our care, whatever their talents. Children of all abilities succeed at this school and are encouraged to develop academically, physically and spiritually, fulfilling their potential in a happy, caring environment.
