Opening our doors to boys from 2017

Introducing single-sex learning for the 21st century


“If you think lessons are boring, think again. Here, Latin comes alive with a Mexican wave, a maths choir sings quadratic equations and when you use decorations on iced buns to explore atoms, you can even eat your research …”

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.

Results 2016

Through individual academic support and a progressive approach to learning, our students achieve top results in  GCSEs and IGCSEs.
