We are significantly over-subscribed every year, being the first school of choice for parents in the area seeking an academic education for their daughters. Boys are accepted into the sixth form.
The school's vision is Building Character, Fostering Respect and Achieving Success. There is a strong tradition of pupils continuing their education to degree-level, with many gaining places at Russell Group universities and Oxbridge.
The school offers a wide and diverse range of extra-curricular activities, including lunchtime clubs, sporting events, dance and drama performances, and European exchange visits. Pupils are given many opportunities to develop as well-rounded individuals, keen to make a positive contribution to society through their chosen career path. Strong pastoral support is provided for all pupils at every stage of their education to make sure they can meet the challenges of growing up in a world which is changing rapidly.
