Academic Excellence

With class sizes much lower than the national average, we offer a balanced curriculum, combining traditional and new subjects, which successfully prepares our pupils to enter the best universities.

The very brightest are stretched through a schedule of enriching activities, whilst those who need it are offered individual support. Constant investment in our educational provision enables teaching at its best and with focused monitoring, we aim to sustain the Schools’ reputation among the North West’s top academic schools.


At National, County or Club level, our boys and girls excel, with some going on to compete professionally. Many enjoy sport for the sheer pleasure of taking part. We participate in a wide range of sports and have numerous teams across the Schools.

The Arts

From music or drama, debating or dance, our pupils benefit from a wide range of activities. Pupils can find their niche and participate either through performance or by helping to support and manage behind the scenes. We have over ten bands and choirs. Recent major joint school productions have included Hamlet, Calamity Jane and Les Misérables.

Extra Curricular

Our many extra-curricular activities develop confidence and team work, and help prepare our pupils for adulthood. It is our hope that all pupils can find something in which to become involved, and to enjoy. Numerous educational visits, to Greece, France, Italy, China and Australia, are offered to pupils.

University and Career

Over 90% of our leavers secure their first choice university, the majority to Russell Group universities, including some each year to Oxford and Cambridge.
