Who will it suit?
Small class sizes allow pupils of mixed-academic ability to find their own strengths. It is expected that each student will join at least two club or ‘society’ activities per week and make good use of the daily 90 minutes set aside at lunchtime for this purpose. The school is proud of its ability to adapt flexibly to meet pupil’s needs in their study of traditional GCSE and A-level programmes, while there is clearly strength in art, textiles and excellent computer-aided design facilities.
Most move on to top UK universities with a strong contingent annually being placed at London’s leading art and design colleges. The School has strong links with both leading universities and those that focus on specialist disciplines.
A one-year International GCSE is available for those who are academically capable, but much time and considerable care is given to allowing all international pupils to find their feet, both academically and socially. The school enjoys the benefits of distance from major city conurbations, but is close enough to both countryside and local town to make pupils feel connected to an English country-life community. It follows no ‘mould’, and very much allows pupils to be themselves.
Sited close to some of Britain’s most historical battles, this 600-year-old school has a strong international pupil-body who clearly enjoy the homely, rather quirky English country outlook to their education, which delivers a warm community-feeling through close personal care by teachers. More than 90% of the 145 boarders in this 420 pupil school are from overseas, and modern teaching and boarding facilities make them feel welcome and at home.
