“The quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent.” (ISI Report 2017)
“The ethos is all about developing the whole person, not just getting them through academic exams. A school that really lives up to its motto, ‘Work Well and Be Happy,’ this is a place that sets young people up for a fantastic future.” (Good Schools Guide)
