In Sport, Art, Design Technology, Music, Drama, Dance and a wide range of co-curricular activities, the expertise of our staff and the tremendous facilities combine to give our pupils a wonderfully broad educational experience. Alongside our focus on ensuring excellent academic progress for each pupil, we believe in providing outstanding opportunities in all other areas of school life.
Pupils grow and learn through their individual interests and talents, which are often pivotal in developing self-esteem and pride. By discovering an ability in one area, pupils develop the confidence to aim higher in others.
As well as striving for excellence in individual areas, our pupils enjoy the breadth of opportunity which helps them become well rounded individuals. A pupil who leads on the sports field is often seen performing in a play or in a choir. It is cool to opt in, not to opt out.
There is a choice of over 40 different activities. Computer programming, horse-riding, golf, chess, jazz and modern dance, pottery, table tennis, judo and cookery are just some of the clubs enjoyed by pupils. Please see below for more information.
Music, Drama and Dance permeate throughout the school to produce a special, highly creative atmosphere. The Performing Arts are of huge importance to pupils, staff and parents throughout the school. Please see below for more information.
In Art and Design and Technology, expert subject specialists teach children as young as 8 years old, with resources and equipment of the highest quality. There is a kiln for pottery and advanced machine-powered tools in the DT room. In Computing, class sets of iPads and two touch screen IT suites are used to build technological skills. Please see below for more information.
Our excellent physical education and sports programme includes three games sessions a week, a dedicated weekly PE lesson, matches against other schools and the opportunities to take part in clubs before, during and after school.
A very strong team of dedicated sports teachers, small group sizes and outstanding facilities ensure high standards and inclusion for pupils of all levels of ability. Our ‘A’ teams in all year groups compete strongly against the best sporting prep schools in the country, whilst we also celebrate seeing every pupil representing the school at ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘D’ team levels. A very wide range of sports is covered, including rugby, hockey, netball, cricket, tennis, swimming, football, squash, golf, table tennis, rounders, cross-country, athletics and gymnastics.
