Mrs Jane Whittingham, Headmistress says, “Our aim is to ensure that all pupils achieve their full potential whatever their ability. These scholarship results are testament to the boys and girls outstanding progress and achievement as well as the excellent teaching they have received. We are thrilled not only with the number of scholarships achieved, but also the range of subjects they are in and to a number of competitive senior schools. As a non-selective school, we believe the prep school model of specialist teaching at an early age in small class sizes reaps rewards and benefits and these results are confirmation of that.”Published: March 28 2017
