The first independent secondary school to go co-educational in 1971, we continue that tradition with an even 50:50 split of girls and boys across each of the year groups. Approximately half of our 1,000 pupils board at the School and half are day students. All our pupils belong to one of the 10 Boarding Houses or 6 Day Houses, so each individual has a place to call ‘home’.

The pursuit of academic excellence is at the heart of everything we do. We aim to offer the highest standards of teaching and learning, so that all pupils fulfil their academic potential. Our ambition is that our pupils not only perform well in their exams, but that they develop an intellectual curiosity that will cultivate a lifelong love of learning.

We provide pupils with a range of opportunities beyond the classroom to develop and pursue physical and mental well-being, to expand their love and interest in creative arts and sport and to exercise innovation, teamwork and leadership skills. Service to others is something that each and every one of our pupils comes to understand and value.
