What the parents say...

My children are absolutely flourishing at this school. The focus is on developing each child as an individual, to the very best of their abilities, regardless of what their starting point might be. This is a school that stands 100% with its ethos of 'To Strive is to Accomplish' and while academic success is a focus, each child is expected to complete their schooling there having developed into a good, well-mannered, hard working and well educated young adult with a steady moral compass. Communication with parents is excellent, feedback between parents, teachers and staff is well received and appropriate action required is always taken timeously. The school building is architecturally breathtaking, and the 36 acres of grounds immaculately kept. To watch my children play sport there is a true joy that I wish every parent could experience. My only regret is that I didn't move my children from their state school, to this school, much sooner! I can therefore highly recommend this school.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

Our Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) department supports pupils with additional learning needs throughout their time at the school. There is a SEND co-ordinator for each of the key stages at pre-prep, prep and senior levels. The co-ordinator offers support in a number of ways: one-to-one sessions, group work or in pairs. The co-ordinator supports teachers in providing a differentiated curriculum for individual learning. Our aim is also to give additional support with individual educational and learning needs as they may arise. Parents are encouraged to talk with the SEND co-ordinator at any time should they have any concerns about the education of their child. Our motto is 'To Strive is to Accomplish' and we support all of our children in achieving this.
