Facilities at the school are first class; from the building itself to the resources which support the delivery of a broad curriculum including an extremely popular and well maintained Learning Resource Centre. Our playing fields, gymnasium, drama theatre and ICT facilities all contribute to ensuring we deliver an education for character, a feature of all Haberdashers’ schools that is part of our DNA.
We take a comprehensive mix of children and expect nothing less than the highest personal goals for each pupil. Where pupils are disadvantaged, we expect them to make rapid progress to catch up with their peers. Our focus is to ensure each child we teach can read, write and do mathematics to a good standard in order to be successful in their education and life.
