The Curriculum

Our academic focus is on educating pupils to know as broadly, think as independently and incisively as possible whilst achieving the best possible results to take them to their next destination.   

Games & the Arts

College provides the opportunity for all pupils to participate in and succeed at a wide range of sports. Those that wish to reach the highest levels are supported through the Talented Athlete Programme with specialist coaching and sessions.

Pastoral Care

The health and wellbeing of our pupils is an integral part of College life at all levels and our Floreat Programme, combined with dedicated people, policies and facilities helps to ensure that the young people in our care are supported to flourish. Morning Chapel services are at the heart of College life and throughout the day Chapel offers a space for reflection and mindfulness.

University Places

Pupils regularly secure places at Oxbridge, Russell Group universities and on MDV courses.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We ensure that life at College offers the opportunity to spark and develop interests in a variety of areas in the classroom, on the sports pitches, the stage and beyond.

Our pupils leave College having discovered and fulfilled their potential. They will all have developed great character, creativity, curiosity, a sense of community and a desire for continuous excellence.
