Housed in extraordinary late-Victorian mansion with turrets, towers, gables and gargoyles with grounds that begged to be played in. Not a hot-house but exits to many of the more magnificent schools and plenty of scholarships. We’ve rarely seen a school give such attention to ensuring happiness and the award-winning food definitely worth writing home about too. Football now rivalling rugby. Sport for all. Everyone in the prep has a bed and boards to some extent.
