The Curriculum

For a small school there are excellent opportunities and a wide range of subjects at GCSE and A-level including, for example, computer science, electronics and business studies. Small classes and generous allocations ensure core subjects are well-taught.

Games & The Arts

A strong tradition in performing arts (the school has its own Victorian theatre) with performances for all ages. sport and music have high levels of participation as well as many talented performers. Dedicated specialist coaching and teachers, an extended day and expectations of staff mean a rich extra-curricular provision.
