We facilitate first-class teaching with modern classrooms and high quality facilities, creating a learning environment where students can flourish.


Scholarships at Year 12 are awarded to students with an excellent academic record at GCSE. Scholars will pursue breadth and depth in their academic study and develop and demonstrate the skills of an independent learner. Scholars lead their peers by example in the academic sphere, displaying an attitude in class, and towards their studies, which is exemplary.
