The transition from Junior School to Senior School is a big step for any child.

We support every pupil throughout their full school journey from children to young adults. We place emphasis on independence and social responsibility, and encourage self-motivation and self-confidence.

Every pupil will be made to feel like a key part of our community from their very first day, no matter what Primary School they have attended.

We’re committed to every pupil’s happiness and progress. Our formal system of reporting progress is in place which includes termly grade cards, academic reports and regular parents’ evenings. On a more informal basis, parents are encouraged to contact teachers individually if they have any concerns. Our team of specialist staff are on hand to provide advice throughout the academic year.


Getting Creative

We encourage all students to fully participate in creative and expressive disciplines through a host of opportunities, whether timetabled or extra-curricular. 

With our bespoke facilities, students with a flair for Art and Design Technology are able to channel their creativity. Visits to galleries, exhibitions and museums and participation in national competitions, all enrich the extra-curricular programme for these students.

With the many orchestras, ensembles and choirs we offer, our pupils with a passion for music have the perfect opportunity to showcase their musical talents both in school and out in the community.

Senior Sport

Every pupil is the Senior School is encouraged to participate in sporting activity and exercise. We have enviable facilities and we ensure our PE & Games programme is designed to cater for a wide range of talents and abilities.

We have competitive fixtures, in a range of sports, against some of the strongest sporting schools in the country and many of our students with a passion for sport have gone on to play at an elite or representative level in their chosen sport. 

In recent years we have achieved national recognition in
a number of sports, reaching national finals in squash, golf, hockey, netball, athletics, cross county and our U16 girls won the National Badminton Championships in 2016.
