What says..

No slacking here, as one day pupil put it; in fact the only negative point she could raise was how tired they were at the end of a packed day. Famously strong at rugby, they don’t just pay lip service to a wide range of other sports but are winning prizes, particularly at girls’ hockey and cricket. Saturday morning clubs, including options for the arty, sporty and those keen to fill academic gaps, are so popular - particularly the destruction and reconstruction of electronic or electrical objects - that parents are prepared to make sure day children don’t miss out.

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.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2015, Adam Williams (40s). Born Down Under, he went to Bradfield then Durham University. Previous job was deputy head of Glasgow Academy; has also been head of geography at Bradfield and Oakham. A neat man with an open face and the hint of a twinkle, he honed impressive cricketing and golfing skills, making it into national teams at schoolboy and university level. Out of school he still keeps his skills up to scratch, preferably on some windswept Scottish course more easily reached from his last job. His Australian start may have led to his love of travel and he rather endearingly admits to having used his geography classes as an excuse to bring out the holiday snaps.

Special Education Needs

The school is sympathetic to pupils with specific learning difficulties and there is a small Special Needs Department that provides support for a range of learning difficulties. The Department aims to help students to become effective learners, while ensuring that awareness of special needs is regularly reviewed so that teachers can meet students' needs across the curriculum. Students are intially identified through prep/primary liaison, screening tests and referrals by subject teachers and concerns expressed by parents. Following further investigation a programme of support is put into action ranging from differentiation within the classroom, to small group-work and 1-1 tuition with a specialist teacher. Progress is monitored and review sessions organised with pupils, staff and parents where appropriate. For further information you are welcome to contact the Special Needs Coordinator on 01256 860257
