We aim to provide an inspirational all-round education which combines academic excellence with a wealth of co-curricular opportunities. All our students go on to Higher Education, with 85% going to one in the ‘top tier’. Our academic track record places us among the top schools in the country.
However, we do not believe that raw results alone show the true measure of a school. It is far more important that each individual achieves his or her very best. A truly excellent education is about much more than academic achievement alone: it is also about developing a passion for learning, capacity for independent thinking, moral values, self-confidence without arrogance, and a broad range of interests that extend beyond the confines of the classroom. In short, it is developing the whole person, to ensure that each pupil leaves here ready for the challenges that lie ahead at university and beyond. It is an education for life.
