Our UK Top 50 Prep School specialises in
finding the best in every pupil and places equal value on cultural,
technological, scientific, linguistic and creative subjects.
Helping children to discover and explore their potential.
We are a child-centred, family school where your child’s happiness and learning needs come first. As part of this, we encourage a friendly, caring and sharing approach to one another, teaching tolerance, acceptance and celebration of our individual natures and cultures.
We aim to provide a first-class education within a wonderfully dynamic and inspiring environment for learning.
Our school facilities are second to none and we are located just a stone’s throw from the Cathedral – where weekly assemblies are held in the historic Chapter House.
We embrace our core values of commitment, opportunity, respect and excellence.
Above all, we have a genuine commitment to bringing out the best in the whole child, helping them to realise their academic, musical, creative and sporting potential.
We develop independence through confidence, respect and understanding.
We expect our pupils to work hard and encourage them to give their best in whatever they undertake. We have very supportive and understanding staff who offer a positive approach to learning and ensure that all aspects of school life are approached with enthusiasm and energy.
We foster community through a philosophy of care.
We believe that the well-being of our pupils is central to their learning and their future development.
Through our assemblies, form and house system, loyalty, teamwork and leadership are fostered and pupils are helped to understand how their actions have an impact on others.
“From the very beginning we encourage our pupils to make good choices, developing manners and self-motivation within a friendly and caring Christian ethos. I hope that you are able to visit our school to see for yourself the impressive learning environment and facilities as well as experiencing the ethos and culture of respect, support and trust.”
