Our website provides information for the entire School community which includes students, current and prospective parents and staff as well as Old Boys, friends and partners of the School.
For prospective parents or partners of the School who wish to find out more about our long history and special ethos, I recommend you take a look at the About Us pages before browsing other parts of the site.
We hope this website gives you a flavour of the enviable academic success of the School; the wide variety of extra-curricular experiences we provide for our students; the dedication and commitment of all the staff and the ambitious development plans we have for the School’s facilities.
All these elements give us our unique character and ensure we continue to be amongst the best schools in the country.
