What The Good Schools Guide says..
And what could make spelling tests any sweeter than taking them in a 20 acre meadow? Huge sports hall dwarfed the tiny tots we saw rehearsing their show and a new reception classroom block (2015) is the cherry on top of this idyllic setting.
What the school says...
The successful mix of single-sex teaching and co-education, together with flexible boarding arrangements, suits the needs of modern families.
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.
