The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) has recently judged the school as ‘excellent’ in all areas.

The Medical Centre provides 24/7 medical care and health services to boarders and day pupils across the School and a limited service to staff; it is integral to the health and wellbeing of pupils.
