What The Good Schools Guide says..
Grand mock-gothic school hall, rather let down by brown plastic seating, bedecked with trad portraits of past heads, plus a more modest one - by OB David Hockney....Thriving, friendly school with tolerant attitudes and broad values – we hope the curriculum refocusing, designed to promote academic stardom, will preserve these.
