The Curriculum

A broad curriculum in Lower School (Years 7-8). A wide range of I/GCSE in the main school. The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or A-levels in sixth form.

Games & The Arts

Part of our philosophy is to empower each child to follow their passion and build self-confidence. An abundance of co-curricular opportunities spans core sports of cricket, hockey, netball and rugby to music, drama, dance, beekeeping, rowing and many more clubs.

Pastoral Care

The heart of pastoral care is our boarding house system, with pupils staying with the same house from Year 9 through to sixth form. Chapel and dining hall also form a bedrock to daily life. Pupils build bonds for life here, sharing challenges and successes.

Service plays a special role too as part of our philosophy to shape generous and compassionate individuals who are ready and willing to give back to society.

Pupils go on to top universities in the UK (69 per cent to Russell Group) and worldwide.
