The small class sizes allow us to give each student the attention and individualised nurturing needed to support their development as they reach their full potential.

Unique Industry Links

Our teaching is delivered by tutors who specialise in their subject area and come with a wealth of business and industry contacts and connections, whether it’s music, sports, arts, the sciences or humanities. Our unique industry links enhance our teaching experience with the latest industry information and knowledge of future trends whilst also providing invaluable extra-curricular opportunities. Pupils can have access to supplementary business and industry-specific support via a bespoke masterclass delivered through the school. We work closely with our alumni to provide a network of support and expert guidance via our ambassador programmes.
