Additional Information

We offer GCSEs and A Levels and our students have a fine track record of going to their first choice of university year after year. High standards of teaching and academic attainment are hugely important to us and we make sure they are enriched by a broader framework of personal development.

Pastoral care at the school is outstanding, and relationships between staff and students are strong.

Founded in 1702 and with a Quaker foundation, we are immensely proud of our heritage and welcome children of all faiths, or none.
