We aim to challenge bright boys to achieve the highest standards within a community of mutually shared values.
We aim to achieve this through partnership with parents so that their sons will move into adulthood equipped with the skills needed to help them fulfil their potential.
We aim to respond positively to the gifts and needs of all our pupils.
We recognise that some boys may be affected by circumstances which impinge upon their educational progress. It is the responsibility of each teacher to be sympathetic to the special needs of each student, whether they are general or specific learning difficulties, physical and sensory impairments or emotional and behavioural difficulties.
We aim to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that all boys are included in school life.
