Pupils joining the Senior School, either from our Junior School or from another school, become part of a civilised co-educational group of young adults.
Whilst in the Senior School pupils achieve a balance between allowing their individuality and creativity to develop whilst being guided by staff to become well adjusted, well informed, confident and well behaved individuals.
Each Form group in Year 9 is made up of a mixture of new and existing pupils. At the very start of the first term the whole year group goes away for an Activity Weekend that provides an excellent way of everyone getting to know each other.
As pupils move through the Senior School they are given every opportunity to develop academically in a balanced and measured way. They are encouraged to develop independent learning skills which will enable them to make a success of their time in school and prepare them for the challenges ahead. Opportunities for responsibility open up and a comprehensive programme of careers advice encourages them to look to the future and make meaningful and realistic plans. Speakers from different walks of life, professions and with stories to tell visit with the intention of opening windows and extending understanding. We hope to create, as far as possible well informed, responsible, aware citizens of the 21st Century. We are proud of the natural, unforced atmosphere of mutual respect which extends throughout the whole school community and beyond.
