Ensuring this process of all round growth – academically, morally, spiritually, athletically and creatively – is our aim. Every pupil is encouraged, taught and challenged to fulfil his or her true potential by being immersed in an environment of discovery and wholehearted participation.
You can be confident that your child will benefit from the same ethos, values and high standards, at whatever stage he or she joins us.
The Prep School has its own distinctive atmosphere and learning environment, but as part of the wider College we offer a greater range of first-rate facilities, teaching resources and opportunities than is typical of most Prep schools.
Senior School pupils enjoy increasing freedom in choosing how they spend their time, with our highly regarded and extensive personal development programme, in addition to outstanding sport, music, visual art and drama opportunities, the Duke of Edinburgh's Awards Scheme and numerous clubs and societies. The breadth of opportunity is simply stunning even by independent boarding school standards.
Boarding in the Prep School is available from 7+ in Grimwade House on a flexi, weekly or full time basis.
We are a selective school and prospective students need to be strong academically.
