Welcome from our Principal

As an academically selective school, we do live, and indeed love, to learn - and our success in this respect can be seen year on year in the outstanding GCSE and A Level results that our students achieve.  Of equal importance to academic study, however, is our commitment to helping our students to learn to live and we hope our website will allow you to see something of how we go about this important business.


We hope you will easily find what you are looking for here on our website. If not, please email us or phone us with your enquiry and we will do our very best to answer it as soon as possible.


While you are here, please take some time to look at our pictures and videos. We believe they will give you a fascinating insight into what our school is all about.  The formal welcome from our Principal, Mr Fisher, is here and is a good place to begin your visit.


Enjoy your virtual visit!
