We care about each individual boy and pride ourselves in the warmth of our community.  You will find our boys feel valued and that we expect the highest standards from all.  Our boys are to be imbued with self-awareness, confidence in their own abilities, resilience and independence of thought and are taught to be strong enough to stand up not only for themselves but also for a greater purpose.

Our school’s single most important resource in delivering its aim of all-round excellence is its teaching staff.  They are at the core of everything we do.  We are looking for individuals who value and want the best for their pupils, who are first-rate, creative and engaging practitioners and who carry a passion, be this academic or outside the realm of academia, that they wish to share.  We want teachers who have the drive and ambition to make a difference, build their own professional reputation and to make their own mark within the school.
