The Curriculum

Boys thrive in our busy, friendly environment with outstanding teaching that stimulates, stretches, nurtures and develops ‘the whole child’ for entry to top secondary schools at 11 and 13 – both in and out of London.

Games & The Arts

All boys play matches in the major sports. Teams are very competitive even against much bigger schools. Wide-ranging clubs programme includes karate, coding, and spy club. Thriving and vibrant music, drama and art departments with ambitious projects, multiple ensembles, and exciting performances.

Pastoral Care

Our tutor system ensures that each boy has someone looking out for him over and above the care he receives from every staff member. The small and friendly community enables staff and boys to get to know each other well. Parent partnership is actively encouraged, and the headmaster’s door is always open.

Recent Scholarships

2021 Leavers won eight Scholarships: academic (5), sport (2), drama (1). Exit at 11 or 13 to mix of London day (e.g., Emanuel, Dulwich, Whitgift, Alleyn’s) and out of town boarding (e.g., Harrow, Charterhouse, Eton, Wellington, Bradfield).

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

‘The whole child is the whole point’: academic rigour, a focus on traditional manners, outstanding extracurricular opportunities, holistic pastoral care and most importantly, a school that puts boys’ happiness centre stage to enable them to fulfil their academic potential.

Outstanding Characteristics
