Games and the Arts

With a broad, balanced sports programme, tailored to the individual, we prepare children for lifelong involvement in sport and physical activity, promoting confidence, health and wellbeing. Whether through art, music or drama, our arts instructors enable students to enjoy creative freedom.

Pastoral Care

We see the pastoral care and needs of our children as central to their success and personal development. There are four main areas of pastoral care that are provided to every pupil: Emotional, Social, Intellectual and Physical. Staff, both day and boarding, work together to ensure that every child’s individual needs are met.

Recent Scholarships

We award academic, art, music and sports scholarships each year for entry into Years 6-8.
