What says..

Science is very popular, young and dynamic rather than geeky – the worktops in the revamped labs wouldn’t look out of place in a kitchen showroom in Hove. Each sixth former has her own tray of instruments and test-tubes, encouraging responsibility and continuity. The pleasant walk to the courts in St Ann’s Well Garden is enjoyed by tennis players, girls are minibussed to Brighton Swimming Centre to swim, and the fitness studio is hugely popular. Main hall, used for two assemblies each week and performances, has retractable seating – when we visited, a vicar had just given a thoughtful address...
