As an Apple Distinguished School, the use of technology is embedded in the curriculum for all students from the age of 3, while the F1 in Schools programme, provides an exciting way for students to learn Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related subjects.

Music and Expressive Arts students perform at a wide range of events and are prepared for examinations with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, Trinity Rock School and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). The outstanding sporting facilities, including a covered swimming pool, sports pitches, running track and sportshall, provide many opportunities for students to compete in team and individual events.
