School Prospectus

Downloadable copies of the school prospectus and parental guide.

It can be hard to convey the tone or flavour of a school in words and pictures; what every parent and pupil wants is to be secure in the knowledge that their school is a setting in which they are known and loved as an individual, that they can fit in, but still be themselves. You want reassurance that your values are respected and your individuality given room to flourish, within the boundaries of mutual respect and tolerance.  Our prospectus is designed to help you make that decision an informed choice.  Parents and pupils will have a taste of what we value, both within the curriculum and beyond it, discover how we help you grow and support your aspirations, enabling you to become a young adult anyone would be proud to know: skilled; well-informed; cultured; considerate and kind.
