Pupils and parents alike rate the school highly - The Good Schools Guide

Combining the warmth and individual attention of a small community with the wider educational opportunities of a larger school, our aim is to provide an education that is challenging, enriching, and fun and prepares pupils to be ready for life. High quality and enthusiastic teaching is supported by superb academic, sporting, and boarding facilities including a new library, studio theatre, an indoor and outdoor Sports & Tennis centre with a 25m pool, an indoor golf TRACKMAN® swing analysis suite, and a new fitness room. Sports and activities are an integral part of our offerings, and academic excellence is supported by individualised attention and encouragement. High performance programmes in football, tennis, golf and swimming gives athletes the opportunity to focus on both sport and education. Dance is led by highly qualified teachers and features a professional grade sprung floor.

Academic strengths include maths and the sciences, which run enrichment activities in robotics, engineering and medicine. A new Technology Innovation Centre inspires discovery and creativity in the field of design and technology.
