Outstanding characteristics: Home to the academy programmes of both Southampton FC and Bath Rugby, the school also has a popular boarding house. We are heavily over-subscribed in the lower school and Sixth Form. Whilst we are amongst the strongest in the region for academic achievement, our view of education is embedded in celebrating all aspects of success and endeavor. For example, the legendary Beechen Cliff challenges are part of our mission to develop character – designed to take students out of their comfort zones into realms that challenge body and mind. The challenges include: Centurion Challenge (100 miles in 48 hours), Ten Tors (hike of up to 55 miles across Dartmoor), Three Peaks, Coast to Coast Cycle ride (100 miles in a day) and Duke of Edinburgh.
