The Curriculum

Excellent academic results where boys are challenged in a warm and nurturing environment. Focus is given on the individual to bring out the very best in every child, with inspirational teaching in small classes.

Games & The Arts

The school makes full use of its facilities at Barn Elms where the boys take part in a variety of sports two afternoons a week including: cricket, rugby, hockey, athletics and cross-country. Music is an intrinsic part of school life, where there is a strong choral tradition. Plenty of extra-curricular activities are available, with a wide variety of clubs on offer.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

The Head Master believes in the core values of honesty, courage and determination: being honest to yourself and to others, having the courage to acknowledge your actions and the determination to do better. Our boys aren’t squeezed into a box – they are given space to breathe and think, to embrace their mistakes and learn from them. We want our boys to be secure in who they are, but have a world view.
