Meet the Leadership Team
Educating children is a great responsibility and privilege in equal measure. To make it work, we need to put a lot in. This begins with seeding the desire for lifelong learning in every student.
Welcome to Lower School
We believe that children have the ability to thrive and achieve in school. In Lower School students hone their self-confidence, emotional intelligence and perseverance through an academic programme that provides variety, challenge and reward and access to the playgrounds, fields and woodlands around our campus.
