What is special about us?
As one of the UK’s top co-educational, all through, day and boarding schools, with a flexible approach to boarding, we can cater for boys and girls of different ages within the family and the individual needs of different families.
As three schools in one, we are large enough to provide an exceptional range of opportunities, whilst each part is small enough for pupils to be known, valued and nurtured as an individual. You can be confident that your child will benefit from the same ethos, values and high standards, at whatever stage he or she joins us.
The shape of our school week, the fact that we are a blend of full and weekly boarders, flexi-boarders and day pupils, the quality and enthusiasm of the teaching staff and the interaction between pupils of different ages mean that breadth of experience is naturally woven into daily life. Our pupils can, and do, pursue high academic standards whilst enjoying, and succeeding in, many other interests. The degree to which we are able to provide such breadth for our pupils is so much greater than many schools.
An innovative, interactive science centre, the use of pioneering technology in geography, the hugely successful Festival of Literature, numerous high quality musical and drama events and frequent high level sporting success are just a few examples of how we constantly strive for excellence in all we do.
We are blessed with a beautifully peaceful, spacious and safe setting, close to the countryside yet within walking distance of the centre of a market town. There is easy access by air, road or rail and full advantage is taken of our close proximity to London and Cambridge.
Many of our parents make substantial sacrifices to enable their children to be with us and we have worked hard over the years to manage our finances carefully so that we are able to provide as much as possible within the termly fee and keep annual increases to a minimum.
At the heart of the value we offer are people. It is the infectious enthusiasm, imagination and dedication of College staff, which, in partnership with parents, enables our pupils to grow into well-rounded, skilful, caring and confident young people, equipped and ready for the adventures and opportunities life has to offer.
