Dear Allison, Many thanks for your information about this school.

This school has been a wonderful nurturing environment for my two daughters. They were challenged and supported in their learning and benefitted from the small, family atmosphere where all of the teachers know their students well and can personalise the learning for each student’s needs. The school is intentionally small in size but the staff work hard to include many extra activities, trips and events which enrich the life of the students. The setting of the school, on the grounds of a golf course, is amazing.
