What says..

The first three years involve less homework (Mrs B recommends using a timer) and more fun trips out; the pace steps up at the start of GCSE courses in year 10. Girls need to be motivated and organised to take it all in their stride. Sixth form is a breed apart: girls say they feel different, are treated differently and have a different experience. There's always something being added or improved: the sports centre a few years ago, then an attractive large house next door was purchased and converted to provide sixth form teaching rooms as well as some welcome garden space, and the latest is a music block...
