Opening our doors to boys from 2017

Introducing single-sex learning for the 21st century

Our Diamond model

The best of both worlds

Our girls and boys (we’re welcoming boys from 2017) learn in single-sex classes for core subjects, but enjoy all the benefits of socialising together outside the classroom.
