What the school says...

Our aim is to promote self-reliance, responsibility, compassion and boldness and also to foster a sense of teamwork, the intellectual freedom to be creative, the confidence and enterprise to initiate and the resilience to cope with adversity. We achieve this and much more by being adventurous.

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.
