Head Teacher’s Philosophy:

The philosophy that underpins teaching, learning and co-curricular activities is ‘Teach Up’. Boys are encouraged to question things and present solutions to problems. Intrinsic to each boy’s wellbeing is that they are appropriately stretched and challenged which we do within a supportive environment. Academic, pastoral and co-curricular spheres interweave in forming the education of the whole person. Such coherence means our boys achieve excellent outcomes at school and later in life.

Outstanding Characteristics:

Educating the whole person. Happy and hard-working boys. Excellent senior school offers. Fostering creativity and critical thinking. Love of learning beyond the classroom. A school defined by service and leadership.
