The school building

The school is situated in an old mansion house named Broad Oak. The original house was built in 1802 as an all-girls school. In 1989 the school was demolished, but was rebuilt in 1900, and was later used as a rest home for the elderly.


Both the Junior and Senior School study Mathematics, English, Science, History, Geography, Business Studies, French, Music, IT, PE and Art and Design. All of these subjects can also be taken at GCSE. In the 2008 GCSE examinations every student gained at least five A* to C grade GCSEs.
