Word From The Head

Head Photo

From Neil Brooks, Head

Our community of day and boarding pupils aged 7 to 13 prides itself on the welcoming atmosphere and sense of belonging in school. Visitors often remark upon our strong community and the respectful relationships between pupils of all ages and staff.

Boys and girls learn, play and compete together in every area of school life. A well-established House system introduces the fun of lively competition and develops bonds across the year groups.

Pupils join from London and the Home Counties and those from further afield can take advantage of our flexi-boarding programme and weekly bus service. Boarding is popular in the upper years as pupils prepare for the next stage of their journey, and extra time of the extended day offers many advantages and opportunities.

A culture of thoughtful learning underpins our richly creative curriculum. Lessons are broad and balanced, encouraging children to explore their intellect. Our co-curricular programme offers an exceptionally varied range of opportunities, activities, trips and residential visits.

Staff at CPS strongly support the theory that ‘I do, therefore I understand’ and so, whether pupils toy with tarantulas, learn inside a planetarium, stand on stage at The Globe or weave a fire-breathing dragon, their senses have been stimulated and real-life connections made.
