The school currently caters for boys aged 7 to 18, with a co-educational Sixth Form. From 2020, it will begin to move towards becoming a fully co-educational day school, when it welcomes its first intake of girls and boys in Year 3 and 7. It is regularly found amongst the leading academic schools in the country and boasts many county and national players in a range of sports. The co-curricular programme is wide and diverse.

There is an ambitious programme of development and expansion as well as a strong emphasis on staff development. Many staff choose to stay; but equally others are prepared and trained for future promotion in leading HMC schools.
