The Curriculum

Our main focus is to build firm academic foundations and encourage a love of learning. We aim to realise the highest academic expectations for all the boys with first class teaching and small classes.

Games & The Arts

We offer a vibrant extracurricular programme with exposure to music, drama, the creative arts and many sports, making the most of exceptional facilities including extensive playing fields, a 350 seat theatre, an Astroturf, 20m indoor swimming pool, and well equipped art block.

Pastoral Care

We have an outstanding staff who get to know the boys incredibly well thereby understanding what makes each individual ‘tick’. Sophie Barber, the Headmaster’s Wife, oversees the pastoral care and together with the resident matrons, school nurse, boarding house parents and all other staff is committed to ensuring that every child’s confidence and character are nurtured at every opportunity. Only if the boys are healthy and happy will they flourish in and outside the classroom.

Recent Scholarships

A range of academic, art, sport and DT scholarships to a variety of schools.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We are unashamedly ambitious for every boy and are proud of our strong academic record, but most importantly, we aim to develop the boys’ confidence in a caring supportive environment, where each boy is valued as an individual, makes friends for life and can flourish and realise their potential.
