The school places great emphasis on providing a breadth of sporting and cultural challenges and opportunities for each student. Students are presented with the chance for exploration both within the curriculum and in Music, Drama, Sport, DofE and the wide variety of clubs and trips. The Jane Austen Wing at the Senior School has modern classrooms for Humanities as well as bright Art studios and enhanced ICT facilities. The IB has widened the options for Sixth Formers who can also choose their desired A-level combination from a wide range of subjects.
