What The Good Schools Guide says..
First and second teams have an excellent sporting record in fixtures against other schools. School tells us it ‘has addressed girls’ sport’ by drawing up C and D teams and organising more fixtures, and everyone gets on a team the majority of times. Outstanding art and DT departments, probably the best we’ve seen for quality of work. Small, permanent gallery at the side of two storey art block displays pupils’ work throughout the year; standard of painting and ceramics is excellent. Artist in residence paints school scenes on site so children can observe brushwork - no surprise that number of art scholars is on the rise.
What the school says...
A friendly, family-orientated school that aims to offer an all-round, top-rate education with a Christian ethos. Small classes taught by highly qualified staff. All children start as day pupils, then flexi-board from Year 4 and by their last year a significant number weekly board, providing an excellent preparation for their move to senior school. Modern facilities (classrooms, laboratories, music school, creative arts and ICT block, swimming pool, sports centre and astro-turf) contrast delightfully with the Victorian chapel and hall, creating a rich and stimulating environment. Four new classrooms have been built, six acres of new sports fields acquired and the boarding accommodation completely restructured and refurbished. ...Read more
