Girls & Boys, Nursery to Sixth Form
We welcome girls and boys aged from 12 months in nursery to 18 years in sixth form. A co-ed school prepares your child for real life and equips them with the social skills they need to be confident at university and in the workplace.
Nursery & Pre School
A 51-week nursery for children aged 12 months +. Significant investment in the setting and facilities has created a wonderful environment for early learning and play. Qualified Early Years practitioners, including qualified teachers, together with specialist teaching from our Junior School gives your child the very best start.
Our vibrant Nursery and Junior School is set in acres of beautiful private grounds at our Wicken Park Campus. A rural location means an abundance of safe space for play, sports fixtures, outdoor learning and our superb Forest School. Classrooms are ablaze with the impressive work of our happy pupils who are inspired by specialist teachers in everything from Design and Technology, Art and French to Robotics and Food Technology!
We value good manners and expect high standards of behaviour at our senior school. We believe these go hand-in-hand with a progressive and adventurous approach to teaching and learning, where pupils enjoy a rich tapestry of academic, cultural and social opportunities. From September 2021, Years 7-11 will all be based together at Akeley Wood House delivering significant benefits to the educational offer and experience for all of our students.
Sportsmanship & Competition
Girls and boys from Years 3 to 13 take part in over 200 competitive school fixtures each year (not during current covid restrictions).
We love what sport gives children and young people and have acres of space at each of our three campuses to train and compete. Both our junior and senior campuses have a sports hall, astro turf and numerous pitches.
