What says..

Like all schools with history, it looks as if it struggles slightly with a hotch-potch of elderly buildings, but despite the squeeze for space has managed to build an impressive new science block (opened by the world-renowned astrophysicist Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell). ‘Really important that what we offer is an all round education.
