What says..

Maths and science are popular - due in part, says the head, to the large number of doctor parents; and illustrated by year 10 turning the whole periodic table into cupcakes in the school bake off. Victoria sponge…or periodic table…They must like it. Music is super here - our tour guides, neither of whom were taking music A level, said their happiest hours at school were spent in the music block. Sailing, recently started at the school, is thriving (as might be expected at an island school where so many children sail regularly with their parents)...
