What the parents say...

I first attended this school when I was 11 yrs old in 1971. It was just taken over by a Mr VGL Read. The whole main building had to be refitted, rewired and apart from rebuilding everything. I saw many changes in the five years I was there. I would like to visit with my wife just to see how the place had changed. Good school.

2015 Good Schools Guide Awards

  • Best performance by Boys taking History at an English Independent School (GCSE Short Course)
Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
