In the Lower School (years 7 to 9), we strive to ensure that every pupil learns to love learning, in an environment where they are challenged and inspired.
In the Upper School (years 10 and 11) we not only prepare our pupils academically for their GCSE examinations, but we also continue to develop their personal skills and encourage them to be active learners who think for themselves.
