Senior School (ages 11 to 18)

We aim to develop confident, thoughtful, outward-looking young people.

We deliver a rigorous academic programme but believe that successful students are not defined solely by their attainment in tests and exams. Our programme of study allows students to maintain breadth as well as depth, based on the National Curriculum for England and Wales leading up to the IGCSE syllabus and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). The IBDP is an internationally recognised programme providing opportunities for collaboration and student-led, in-depth research into areas of interest.

Our co-curricular programme provides opportunities for students to excel in sports and performing arts and we encourage all our students to take part in a service project or join a community group.

Pastoral care is at the heart of all we do, and students are supported by an excellent and committed staff. Every student belongs to a House, which is the basis of the system of guidance and welfare that enables us to take personal care of each student. We encourage our students to make the most of the international context in order to embrace other cultures and develop lifelong friendships. Many children have mentors from older year groups and our strong links to the community beyond the school gates mean that our students maintain a broad and compassionate outlook.
