Secondary students visit Tanzania as part of Global Campus and the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Adventurous Journey.

We welcome many visitors throughout the year who offer master classes in sports and other cultural activities. Authors, sporting personalities and even our favourite storybook characters often pay us a visit.

As part of our collaboration with The Juilliard School, Juilliard Curriculum Specialists in Dance, Drama and Music visit our school to lead workshops and assemblies for students and professional development sessions with our teaching team.

Our list of extra-curricular activities is extensive and includes horse riding, sailing, golf, arts and crafts, drama, dance and sport.

Music plays an important role and we offer all of our pupils a comprehensive instrumental music programme with lessons available during the school day or after school.
