EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES : Our extra curricular programme is not only wide-ranging but is also designed to stretch children so that they develop the courage to try new things, improve their skill-levels, enjoy teamwork and find new interests.

FLEXIBILITY : Not being restricted to the National Curriculum allows us to adapt our teaching to ensure that children are stimulated, active and take a genuine interest and responsibility for their work.

SIMPLE TRANSITION : Links with the Senior School are seamless, ensuring transition from Prep to Senior is easy and without the hurdles of entrance testing or SATS.

COMPLETE CARE : An early morning drop-off from 8am, buses from all over the region and flexi-boarding all help to make life easier for busy families.
