Come and visit us at our next Open Day...

Our curriculum is broad and stimulating with exciting lessons so that classrooms are busy, creative places of active learning.

Because of our small class sizes, there is plenty individualised learning. Music, PE and languages are taught by specialists and from Year 5 pupils have the fantastic opportunity of Science lessons in the Senior House labs.

Outside the classroom there are trips for each year group linked to the curriculum and plenty of outdoor learning. Our impressive range of extra-curricular activities ranges from Latin Club to Irish dancing as we believe the more opportunities we can provide, the more talents our pupils will discover and the more their confidence will grow.

When pupils leave Junior House in Year 6, they are very well-prepared to ‘hit the ground running’ in Senior House where I know they continue to thrive. Seeing them leave the Sixth Form years later as confident, aspirational, polite young adults is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job!
