Talk to the parents of a current student.

As part of your due diligence, you may want to ask our current parents some questions. Email us by clicking here and we'll put you in touch. That way, you'll get an unvarnished account of what it's like to learn here. It's really the best marketing we have.

Visit the school. Bring your pupil. And your knowing eyes.

Nothing can tell you more about our school environment and vibe than a visit to the school. Get a physical sense of the place. Meet teachers and staff. Watch our one to one in action. Seeing is believing.
