Togetherness is everything to us. Our school is a thriving community to which we all belong and we expect everyone to play a full and active part in the life of the school.


Our House system provides our boys with opportunities to interact with pupils who are not necessarily part of their usual friendship, year or tutor groups. These ties across groups help to forge a unique sense of community within the school through shared responsibility, acceptance and respect.


We’re a local school for local boys and we have strong roots within the community. We’ve forged close links with many local businesses who provide work experience for our boys. We’ve also built connections with local organisations and charities, regularly giving something back to our area.


Our long-standing educational partnership with renowned independent King’s College School, Wimbledon, is based on the belief that we can benefit from each other’s experience and knowledge. We share teaching and management expertise between the two schools and our boys work together in other subjects such as Drama and through our Combined Cadet Force programme.
