Daily Life Overview
Our school ethos puts great emphasis on pastoral care and extracurricular life enriching activities to help great minds grow. Our reputation has always been strong on academia; the difference now is our support and encouragement in other spheres – sport, the arts – and in the development of a general sense of well-being.
