Preparing individuals for whatever they choose to do in life

  • The ethos challenges selfishness and teaches:

         1. consideration for others

  • We are committed to the development of sport, music, drama and art.
  • We encourage independent thinking and the self-confidence to constantly challenge
  • Our core purpose is to prepare pupils to transfer to their Senior Schools at 13. However, we do have a small amount of leavers at 11+, and pupils are prepared for entrance examinations at this time.
