    School Life

    Our school motto, dating from the school’s foundation in 1871, is ‘Onwards and Upwards’.

    This captures the sense of optimism and determination to succeed that permeates the school. We aim to develop resilience in our students, and the ability to be tenacious in their quest to be the best they can be in all aspects of their lives.

    We are ambitious for every young person in our school, and our commitment to their success is combined with very strong pastoral work to make sure that students feel happy, safe and supported at all times.
