Meet our team

"Boarders are part of a strong school community which recognises their individuality and supports them to fulfil their potential. 
Managers are persistent in reviewing the well-being of boarders and achieving positive outcomes for them.
Teachers also work as house parents. This provides additional support for boarders with homework and revision. Boarders frequently commented on the positive difference this has made." 
(Outstanding boarding Ofsted report, 2017)
