This leading independent co-educational school educates girls and boys from ages 3 to 18 in a caring and supportive atmosphere, where inspirational teaching and outstanding pastoral care, combine to help each child achieve their full potential.

The school offers flexible boarding for pupils aged 11-18 from the UK and abroad. The Houses are at the heart of pupils' lives, and we aim for all boarders to experience a warm and supportive atmosphere, each run by an experienced and dedicated team.  Boarders support each other’s achievements on the sports' field, in concerts, on stage and in the examination hall. We also offer a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities at the school including the CCF, Duke of Edinburgh Award schemes, World Challenge expeditions.
