Huge estate, small classes and personalised pathways

Our 110 acre estate comprises mature parkland, excellent pitches and award-winning woodlands. The Senior School and Sixth Form inhabit an elegant Georgian manor, while the Prep School and Nursery benefit from purpose-built contemporary architecture. Both embrace a wide range of academic subjects delivered through personalised pathways by specialist teachers, to class groups between fifteen and twenty pupils. We expect every individual to reach and grow beyond their academic predictions from the point they join us.

Self-confidence, collaboration and problem solving

Academic rigour is accompanied by an equally strong focus on personal characteristics. Pupils benefit from our own Forest School, a strong commitment to Duke of Edinburgh Awards, extraordinary expeditions and the value of public speaking and debating. Each develops self-confidence, resilience and problem solving skills that will be essential in tomorrow’s workplace. We expect every individual to become engaging, innovative and collaborative contributors to the future.

Trust and respect, making memories in a family atmosphere

Comprising around 300 pupils aged between two and 18 years, our school really is like an extended family. Most pupils and staff know everyone’s name. Pupils, Teachers and support staff share lunch in the same dining hall. Friendships transcend all ages through our House system, and families become lifelong friends. We expect every individual to recognise the important role of trust, respect and kindness within happy and fulfilling lives.
