Tickets on sale from Main School reception now.

"Join us for the first half of an epic journey through the greatest story ever told. The tale of Pip, Charles Dickens' mighty "Great Expectations" will straddle the two ends of this academic year. Part One of this two-part adaptation will be performed next week on Thursday 30 November and Friday 1 December in the Main Hall at 7pm. (Please note the earlier than usual start time). Part Two will form our Trinity Term drama production in July 2018. Lose yourself in the interlocking destinies of some of the most celebrated characters in English Literature, brought to life by a huge and eclectic cast drawn from students in every year group in the school and with a record number of teaching staff mining their thespian talent! This promises to be a very special evening of live theatre."

Extra-curricular activities

All extra-curricular activities take place at lunch time or occasionally after school. At the beginning of each term the children select which club they wish to attend. These are entirely optional but very popular with our pupils. A wide choice is available – art, athletics, choir, cricket, football, ICT, orchestra and swimming are some of our current activities. We have some thriving Junior School teams who play matches against local schools and other independent schools in the North West region.


Once per term each class will take part in an educational visit to a place of interest which complements the children's studies. Every Christmas the children go to the theatre. In Year 6, following their SATs examinations, the children go on a residential activity holiday. Before any visits take place the necessary risk assessments are, of course, carried out.

Occasionally, guest speakers are invited into school or special workshops take place for specific year groups or the entire Junior School.
