"Pupils gain from the school’s rural settings. The range and quality of facilities are excellent."

"Pupils’ behaviour improves during their time at school. Staff are skilled in helping pupils to reflect on, and develop strategies to regulate, their emotions and behaviours."

The school places an equal emphasis on the educational, social and psychological development of students.  The key to the success of the school is a strong ethos, developed by a highly experienced and capable staff, and the strength of the relationships between the staff and the students.
