What says..

Jolly nice, old fashioned school with proper values and the best of modern teaching methods. Special braid on blazers for sixth form, more braid for prefects, some of whom end up looking like Christmas trees.

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.

Academic matters

Academically strong across the board. The lovely exam website to which we were directed by the school only gives percentages and our request for results by subject by grade hiccupped, with the head saying that she ‘can't disclose this information due to our exam results being small and the risk of pupils being identified’. Nevertheless, 59 per cent A grades at Advanced Higher, 64...
