The curriculum: Younger children enjoy an exciting, hands-on, thematic-based curriculum including Forest School in the school’s extensive onsite woodland. Further up the school, the children work towards 13+ CE, or academic scholarship. Creativity is embedded within the curriculum throughout the school, equipping the children with the skills to think critically and to work collaboratively, coming up with solutions to complex problems. Opportunities for creative design, art, music, drama and games are outstanding as demonstrated by the children’s success at Year 8. Sport plays an integral role and we hope to instil a love of taking exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Extra curricular activities: Extensive opportunities including Tennis (with links to Team Bath), swimming, Ballet, Creative Design, Speech and Drama and many more

Pastoral care: Children learn best when they are happy and so first and foremost, we set out to ensure that our pupils are happy, healthy and well supported to meet the numerous and varied challenges that their childhood will throw at them. Full, weekly and our hugely popular flexi boarding options are available to help parents manage busy lives.

Outstanding characteristics: With Dr Richards (a child psychologist as well as an educationalist) at the helm, the school has a clear vision on how best to support the children and prepare them to thrive at their next schools and in the rapidly changing world in which they will live and work, where creativity and resilience will be key. It is an approach which is proving outstandingly successful with 62% of Year 8 pupils gaining a scholarship or award to their senior school over the past three years.
