What the school says...

Located in a beautiful Staffordshire village, we offer an exceptionally enriching experience for pupils of all ages, enjoying and taking advantage of first-class resources and excellent opportunities. The school boasts an impressive and broad academic reputation and equally fine standards in music, dance, sport, riding and speech and drama. On-site facilities include a heated indoor swimming pool, Equestrian Centre, Dance Studios and extensive sports facilities. We admit pupils throughout the year and encourage taster days (and nights) for prospective pupils. ...Read more

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.

Entrance

Non-selective. Every child has talent. ‘We accept boys and girls of all faiths and abilities.’ Pupils may arrive at any stage, providing there is room. Obviously the start of term is the best time but the school is flexible about that. We met children who joined in the middle of a term and who spoke so happily about the way they had been welcomed in by everyone. Taster days are available and parents will be interested to know
