Program

Academic

The broad curriculum encourages a diverse range of knowledge and skills whilst the flexibility of the timetable enables pupils to select from 23 A Level subjects. Housestaff and pupils’ personal tutors are on hand to provide support and direction where needed and parents are fully informed and involved as partners. Typically, over 50% achieve A*/A at A Level and around a over 70% of GCSE grades are A*/A. Over 95% go on to university and an average of 7 pupils a year gain places at Oxbridge.

Boarding

 

Each of the 4 boarding houses has a married couple as houseparents who provide care, support, guidance, and a true home away from home. A welcome party is held for new international students and each is assigned a “buddy” from among their housemates to help them settle in. Inter-house competitions are regular events, which help build camaraderie as well as being great fun, whilst the College’s proximity to London and Cambridge is ideal for weekend visits to art galleries or the theatre.

Sports

 

Sport at the College strikes a balance between ensuring that every pupil has the opportunity to succeed and helping the most talented excel at the highest level. At whatever level it is played, sport at the College aims to build determination, commitment and adaptability. Excellent facilities include extensive sports fields, all-weather surfaces, a swimming pool and a gym. Full-time staff are complemented by specialist coaches whilst recent tours have taken in South Africa and Italy.

Creative arts

 

The College aims to develop pupils’ artistic skill and confidence, and the Art Centre (opened 2009) with its gallery, IT suite and artist-in-residence is the perfect environment for a broad range of disciplines. The orchestra, band and various ensembles provide opportunities to perform at concerts, assemblies and in the Inter-house music competition. A well-equipped theatre with a full-time technical stage manager hosts at least 3 major productions a year, recently including a well-received Macbeth.
