Purpose built facilities house all the subject departments and investment has been considerable at both Senior and Junior sites. There have been positive developments in teaching and learning with increased ICT provision and individualised monitoring of each pupil’s progress. These improvements, along with the dedication of the staff, have had a positive impact on academic performance, as shown by the strong results at GCSE and A level.
Investment has also been made in sports facilities with a Sports & Teaching Pavilion and an all-weather pitch, and more recently a refurbishment of the Sixth Form Centre and Learning Enrichment department.
The idyllic village location of the Junior School at Aldford boasts extensive playing fields, purpose-built shaded area and an ecology park. The Infants and Juniors also share use of the extensive facilities at the Senior School.
