The School's aim for the past century has been to enable students to thrive in a secure and encouraging environment, equipping each one to be resourceful and resilient in a changing world, ready to take on life's many challenges and opportunities. This continues to be the aim and the School believes the move to a phased introduction to coeducation, along with an education based on the Christian foundations of love and service, will enable the girls and boys to be even better prepared for university and their future lives.
There is an on-going multi-million pound investment plan in the School.
Recent developments have included a state of the art performing arts theatre and a music centre, new science laboratories, spacious art studios, improvements to the large sports centre, a fitness suite, food and textiles suites, new boarding facilities, common rooms and the Jubilee Building housing an excellent library Library.
The sustained development of facilities at the School alongside continued excellence in academic standards, innovative sports provision, and an extensive co-curricular programme puts the school in the best position to become the leading provider of coeducation for families in the surrounding area.
