The Art and Design rooms are colourful, enriching and superb for encouraging creative self-expression.

Pupils are exceptionally well cared for and monitored closely by class teachers, tutors, heads of year, heads of house and senior leadership. The on-site counselling service provides support to pupils, parents and staff.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy
We ignite a passion for learning in our pupils, exposing them to a broad curriculum, dynamic classrooms and opportunities to discover who they are and what place they wish to take in the world. Our nurturing ‘home from home’ environment is underpinned by core values of ‘POISE’: perseverance, ownership, integrity, service and empathy.
Alongside academic excellence, it is an accredited Tedx Centre. Year 5&6 pupils audition, rehearse and perform on Tedx’s global platform – achieving 5 million+ views last year! The new Performance Theatre supports this with staging, lighting and surround sound. An official ‘Silver Eco-School’ with pupil-driven Eco Comittee.
