Academic excellence is at the heart of what we aim to achieve. We aim to provide a broad education that will stretch and develop the whole person. And we aim to ensure that our teaching is – to borrow the words of our inspection report – ‘finely tuned to the specific requirements of individuals’. Boundaries and rules are clearly needed in any community – and ours are clear and well understood – but we try to keep these to the necessary minimum.
Alongside the academic curriculum, a varied and vibrant programme of co-curricular activities opens up all sorts of opportunities for students throughout the age range. All the staples are there – sport, music, drama, Art, D of E, etc.
