About Us and our history

Small is beautiful. And academically successful.
Ever since the school’s inception in 1950, our family ethos has ensured that each young person is treated very much as an individual.

Although the scale and academic stature of the school have grown alongside our new buildings and facilities, we are still small enough to know each young person by name and develop a true understanding of their specific needs and abilities.

Individually, together.
With new facilities such as our spacious, purpose-designed new EYFS unit, 3G sports area, advanced IT facilities, adventure playground, drama studio and enhanced DT unit capability, we can now offer dynamic new opportunities in learning, sport and extra-curricular group activities.

The result is a vibrant community where teams, choirs and ensembles can flourish, thrive and travel, learning together, winning together and achieving together, as they each follow their own unique journey towards fulfilling their individual potential.

Where individuality meets continuity.
Our ability to offer co-educational independent day school provision across the entire schooling age range makes us the perfect choice for families who value continuity and individualised attention.

We support children from their very first steps in our outstanding Early Years nursery section, throughout their learning journey up to university entrance after their studies in Sixth Form.

A refreshingly responsible approach.
As part of our outwardly focused approach to education, we also encourage students to reach out into the wider community they will soon experience as adults.

Our unique approach engenders high standards of behaviour and self-discipline as well as building a mature awareness of their personal and social responsibilities, to prepare them for the challenges of adult and business life.

A mutually rewarding partnership.
We see any child’s education as a strong, dynamic and mutually rewarding partnership between school and home.

It is a partnership which has reaped spectacularly pleasing rewards for pupils and parents over successive generations.

Producing articulate, fully rounded individuals who are fully prepared to meet the exciting challenges of their future.
