Unashamedly academic

For state students it hasn’t always been a level playing field, until now. We are unashamedly academic with a reputation for the relentless pursuit of excellence and a determination to ensure that every child succeeds.

Admissions for Sept 2019

Admissions for a Year 7 place in September 2019 are now closed. Please visit the admissions page for information about late applications.

Message to parents/carers: Please remember to drive on to site to drop off or collect students in order to prevent congestion on neighbouring roads. Additional on-site parking space is to be made available both before and after school for parents needing to drop off and pick up students.

Thank you.
