Games & The Arts

Sports range from the traditional track and field to more creative and contemporary disciplines – including yoga, street dance and boxercise – enhancing pupils’ physical and emotional wellbeing and developing teamwork skills. The Arts are key to both the curricular and extra-curricular offering, with exhibitions, plays and concerts regularly staged. The school boasts five choirs, an orchestra, and several brass bands, and pupils achieve highly in LAMDA.

Pastoral Care

From Philosophy for Children to school pets, children’s personal and emotional development is prioritised alongside academic achievement. All staff are committed to nurturing character and wellbeing within the small tutor groups and warm community, so that every pupil thrives on a strong sense of belonging and security. Pupil wellbeing is further enhanced by confidence workshops and Forest School.

Recent Scholarships

Pupils are placed at leading senior schools with academic, art, music and sports scholarships.
