Our School THE OLD AND THE NEW Our school traces its origins back to 1090. Behind classical limestone cloisters our buildings have occupied their present grounds since 1906. Yet today we are a modern, vibrant and ambitious Comprehensive School, proud to serve our entire local community. In recent years we have invested significantly in state-of-the-art facilities, particularly in the Darwin Building where new science laboratories have found a popular home. Although grounded in history, we fully embrace the 21st century opportunities open to our students. We are proud of everything they have achieved in the past, and passionate about securing their opportunities into the future. We are particularly proud of our reputation in sport. Students have the opportunity to take part in sport for recreation, enjoyment and competition. Our facilities include a 25-metre heated indoor pool, a fitness suite, a dance studio, tennis and netball courts, cricket and tennis pavilions and a full-size 3G all-weather floodlit pitch.
