About the School

Founded in 1972, this is a co-educational school for students age 3-18. 


An International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, they offer the Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years Programmes (MYP) as well as the IB Diploma. The IB programmes combine intellectual rigour and high academic standards with a strong emphasis on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship.

This was one of the first schools in the UK to offer the IB diploma. The recent graduates achieved a 100% pass rate, well over the 2010 worldwide average of 77.8%. Additionally, the average score of 31 was well over international averages and the percentage of bilingual diplomas at 71% is more than double the worldwide average of 30%.


The school was purpose-built in the 1930s and has been refurbished with a library, science laboratories, kitchen, dining hall and multi-purpose auditorium.
