For pupils for whom, English is not their first language there is a strong ESOL department.

    A day in the life of…..

    Boarders from across all 9 houses gather in the main dining hall for breakfast from 7.45am before joining the day pupils in classes at 8.35am. There are 6 lesson periods each day with 3 afternoons per week for sports activities and fixtures. Lunch starts at 12.25pm and pupils gather together to enjoy a choice of hot and cold dishes, freshly prepared daily on the premises.

    On Saturday evenings and Sundays there are a range of trips available so it really is like living in a ‘home from home’.
    Over 100 activities, clubs and societies take place every week and pupils can take part in these during the day and in the evenings, after supper and after supervised homework/study sessions.
    Each house offers recently refurbished bedrooms and dormitories along with purpose-designed Common rooms so that all year groups are able to mix and enjoy each other’s company.
