“Pupils benefit particularly from a programme of additional activities, designed to inspire a love of learning and to deepen their understanding. This provides a bridge for pupils’ curricular and extra-curricular experiences. Extra-curricular provision is outstanding, and is enhanced by the school’s spacious and striking grounds.”
(ISI Inspection Report 2012)
