High School South of England

Our aim is for every child to develop a positive and proactive attitude towards learning which will support them throughout their lives. Our strong academic, extracurricular and pastoral teams ensure that each individual has the opportunity to develop knowledge, confidence, self-esteem, good learning habits, and a moral sense within a busy and vibrant environment. This is enhanced by small class sizes and vibrant, imaginative teaching.


Students who attend our programme are encouraged to discover that they have attributes in areas where they perhaps least expected, thanks to the guidance given by the teachers. Students have the opportunity of learning many new skills and also competing at the highest level at inter-school, local, county and national level.

Football Academy:

  • Links to the professional game.
  • Unique coaching programme.
  • Highly qualified and experienced staff.
  • Proven record of developing players.


The school has two boarding houses, each with its own unique character but both offering safe, comfortable and structured accommodation. Both houses have been located off campus, as we believe it is vital for the students to have a break from school at the end of each day and at the weekend. This helps with relaxation and makes the boarding house a closer and more inclusive community in its own right.

In addition, being closer to the local community enables our international students to benefit from the true immersion experience, and helps with the development of their English language skills.
