Our three schools are renowned for the way their high academic standards, extensive and diverse weekly extra-curricular opportunities and structured pathways to success inspire and guide girls and boys to achieve the extraordinary. Whether children join us in Pre-Prep, Juniors or Seniors, what all our schools share is a desire to help them make their way in the world, their way. We tailor everything to suit the learning styles of our individual students to instil a true joy of learning, equipping each with the skills and confidence to go out in the world and be exactly who they want to be.

We are accessible by train (5 mins walk from the station) and via school bus routes throughout Yorkshire.
