The Curriculum

The stimulating curriculum is broad and tailored to individual needs. Our multi-sensory approach encompasses every type of learner; specialist teachers and imaginative teaching methods ensure all children thrive. 

Games & The Arts

Sport, Art, DT, Music and Drama are pupil-centred and all-inclusive with countless opportunities to develop interests and discover talents. 

Pastoral Care

Our Catholic ethos values every individual and we go to great lengths to ensure the happiness of every child, preparing them not only for senior school but for fulfilling and rewarding lives in the years to come. Boarders and day pupils alike benefit from the exceptional pastoral care, which is inextricably linked to the structural organisation of the school, through the quality of teaching and learning, the home-from-home environment in the boarding houses, the exceptional relationships between staff and pupils, and between the pupils.
