We are situated on the edge of Bristol in a beautiful rural setting and part of the Cathedral Schools Trust. Our thriving, diverse community is founded on our core values of respect, responsibility and resilience; we actively encourage everyone within our community to ‘live and breathe’ our values every day.

We are committed to continuous professional learning which is built into our school day each fortnight for all staff.

We actively support and promote progression with Cathedral Schools Trust (CST).
Music and the broader arts are at the centre of the vision for Cathedral Schools Trust. We believe in education that encourages young people to be imaginative, knowledgeable, hopeful and equipped to make significant decisions.
