Our children represent us strongly in every field, and all go on to an impressive selection of leading schools. The appreciation and exercise of Curiosity and Courage, throughout the school, enable this. Each child is carefully understood as an individual by their teachers, and encouraged to enjoy challenge in all its forms. Our size supplies both bespoke provision as well as an invaluable range of choice. In addition to making optimal progress as an individual, our boys and girls all acquire the equally important grail of socialising with a variety of others. No one type prevails - unless one includes cheerfulness and confidence.

School description

Small classes, quality teaching and high expectations form the backbone of our academic success. We aim to challenge each child to develop and flourish within the classroom, providing an environment where they are happy, confident and well supported. 

While we follow the National Curriculum and indeed exceed the standards required, we are not bound by it but are able to offer a broad and balanced curriculum.
