Leadership and Liberal Education

The provision of a Liberal Education is at the heart of the School’s methodology, shaping our approach to learning, to Co-Curricular life, and to our pastoral provisions. Leadership is equally integral to the School’s approach, actively striving to imbue all of our pupils with leadership qualities that will see them succeed in all aspects of life after school.
