  • about us

    Exceptional Education

    We offer an education that is rooted in traditional, family values and imbued with a spirit of tolerance and respect for the individual. Aspirations and expectations are high and our pupils respond accordingly but each child is valued for what he or she brings to the wider school and Minster community.
