Games & the Arts
As one of the leading sports schools in England, we believe every child deserves to enjoy sport whatever their level. Our arts calendar is full of activities for girls and boys to get involved in.
Our last ISI inspection rated our provision of pastoral care as ‘excellent’ – the top grade possible – and the last Ofsted inspection awarded our welfare for boarders as ‘outstanding’. We take considerable care in maintaining a supportive and accepting community that celebrates differences between people, affirming a sense of belonging for all.
