What The Good Schools Guide says..
Much of the teaching in 1960s blocks in the garden – not architecturally inspiring, to speak unreasonably kindly of them, but no one seems to mind. ... If we were to single out one quality of this school it would be the calm, not at all brassy, self-confidence of the older girls: ‘I can do it’, ‘I’ll give it a go’...
What the school says...
The school places great emphasis on providing more than academic excellence by offering a secure, happy family atmosphere for all boarders and encouraging individual progress in all areas including sport, music and the performing arts.
