Our beautiful surroundings
Take a look +

A significant proportion of the Park is dedicated to sport and outdoor learning opportunities, but it also provides that all-important space in which your child can take some time for peaceful reflection. These moments of quiet tie back perfectly to our Quaker roots, too. Our students benefit from regular trips to Oxford and London but enjoy the calm, beatuful and safe environment of our 65 acres of parkland.

“A palpable sense of calm pervades the place – you feel it as you drive in and your shoulders drop as you step out of your car and breathe out.”
