About the School
Friends’ School is a lively and caring community with one simple aim: to realise the potential and talent of all pupils within a friendly but challenging environment. High standards of teaching and academic attainment are obviously hugely important to us, but we make sure they are enriched by a broader framework of personal development
Achievement is valued in all aspects of school life, whether it is academic, dramatic, artistic, musical or sporting. We believe in the importance of social skills, service to others and self confidence without conceit. When your child joins us, he or she will have plenty of opportunities in all sorts of activities - with the constant support of a community which respects individuals, values achievement and broadens perspective.
Each school day begins with morning assembly, and the Quaker tradition of silent worship. Children of all faiths, or none, are welcomed equally into an exclusive environment that respects all religious backgrounds. The Quaker way is to seek the inner light – God’s presence within each person – and that is reflected in the school way of celebrating the value of each individual and their ideas.
