Who are we
The School has a fine tradition of "scholarship and care" dating back over 400 years, with its present popularity founded upon excellent results, impressive standards of care and a reputation for a friendly, relaxed yet purposeful atmosphere. Our value-added measures are strong at every level, sufficient for us to be designated 'a high-performing specialist school'. We are also considered an 'outstanding' school by Ofsted with the top rating in all categories. Finally, we are one of the few schools nationally with three specialisms - the first in Performing Arts, the second in Modern Languages and from April 2007, a third as a Training School.
Cultural Education Challenge Commitment
Our school is taking on the Cultural Education Challenge. This means that our learning journey takes us to places where we can create, compose, perform, visit, experience, participate, know, understand and review great art and culture. Along the way, we meet inspiring artists and cultural experts that help us explore our own and others’ inventiveness. Together we inspire each other to be creative, courageous and curious.
