Pastoral Care

A warm and welcoming atmosphere is present from a child’s first day. There is a remarkable sense of community, and of pupils and staff working together. Form tutors are a constant source of encouragement, praise and advice, supported by a strong pastoral team within this very happy school.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We focus on enabling each child to fulfil their intellectual potential, while encouraging them to find real enjoyment, and to seek success from their participation, at whatever level in the many artistic, cultural and sporting opportunities which the school promotes. We believe that children should grow up with an understanding of the importance of personal responsibility, respect for other people and how to work as part of a team.

Outstanding Characteristics

The School is set in 40 acres of stunning Surrey countryside, less than 50 minutes from London with first class sports and music facilities and an exceptional art department. Unique pastoral care in a wonderfully relaxed, inspirational environment leads to outstanding academic results.
