This ‘best of both’ gives an unparalleled breadth of opportunities and experiences that allows our students to thrive.

Our academic success is long-established, with excellent exam results that place us amongst the best schools in the county and the country – and we are a school that constantly looks to improve.  Whilst these outstanding academic successes are important to us as they give our students a wealth of choices, we are so much more than this.
