Character

Developing a range of skills and an attitude to succeed in the complex society we live in, and showing sound judgement, compassion and integrity gives a solid foundation for every pupil to take on the challenges of life, and to thrive. By offering a really special environment in which pupils really immerse themselves in College life, we help to create rounded people who show great character and make well-informed choices.

Community

Community works at many levels, from the peers pupils live with in our eleven Houses, learning to help and share and learn and compete with others every day, to the care and compassion they learn in our wider community activities, developing a readiness to contribute to the common good, and a commitment to the service of others.
