Breadth of experience is woven into daily life. Pupils can, and do, pursue high academic standards whilst enjoying and succeeding in many other interests. Every pupil is encouraged, taught and challenged to fulfil his or her true potential. Teachers strive to allow time and space for academic work to be balanced by sport, music, drama, and a diverse choice of other activities. Their tagline is ‘We Build Confidence for Life’.
